The Canadian Davis Cup team’s spot in the elite 16-team World Group has been cemented for a seventh consecutive year following Denis Shapovalov’s 6-3, 7-6(1), 6-3 victory over Ramkumar Ramanathan of India on Sunday. The 18-year-old from Richmond Hill, Ont. captured a straight-sets win to secure Canada’s triumph over India in their Davis Cup by BNP Paribas World Group play-off tie at Edmonton’s Northland Coliseum. The final score for the weekend is 3-2 in Canada’s favour following a 6-4, 4-6, 6-4 loss by Canada’s Brayden Schnur to Yuki Bhambri in the last match of the weekend.
