The draw for the 2013 Davis Cup by BNP Paribas World Group was held on Wednesday at the offices of title sponsor BNP Paribas in London. The Canadian Davis Cup team will play a home tie versus Spain from February 1-3, 2013 in the first round of the World Group.
"Spain is a tough team, but when you are in an elite group of 16 countries every team is going to be tough," said Canada's captain Martin Laurendeau. "We want to be the first Canadian team to ever win a World Group tie and we will continue to work towards that for February. We get to host them in Canada, in front of our home crowd and we will use that to our advantage and are really looking forward to this opportunity."
