Canada takes 2-0 lead over Chile on opening day of Davis Cup

Canada is now just one triumph away from ousting Chile in the Davis Cup by BNP Paribas World Group play-offs after Frank Dancevic (Niagara Falls, Ont.) and Vasek Pospisil (Vancouver) both captured victories on Friday. Dancevic opened the tie, being held at Scotiabank Centre in Halifax, with a 6-3, 6-7(5), 6-1, 6-4 victory over Christian Garin before Pospisil defeated Nicolas Jarry 6-1, 5-7, 7-6(2), 6-3 to give Canada its best-case result on the first day of play.

Dancevic started well, taking the first set in just 31 minutes, and looked to be on his way to a simple two-set lead. However, despite serving for the second set twice and leading 5-1 in the tiebreaker, the veteran Canuck let 20-year-old Garin back into the match. After re-grouping, Dancevic was able to quickly re-assert his lead by reeling off five straight games. He was the stronger player from that point on, showing his greater experience in both Davis Cup play and on a fast indoor hard court surface.
