Great Britain open up 2-1 lead in Davis Cup

Despite a heartfelt performance in front of an impressive crowd, Canada couldn’t solve a solid British team who now holds the 2-1 edge after the second day of Davis Cup by BNP Paribas play at TD Place in Ottawa. Canadian doubles veteran Daniel Nestor (Toronto) and Vasek Pospisil (Vancouver) fell to Great Britain’s Jamie Murray and Dominic Inglot 7-6(1), 6-7(3), 7-6(3), 6-3 in a closely-contested duel on Saturday afternoon in their World Group first-round tie.

For the second straight day, Canada and Great Britain battled before an electric stadium of supporters. The 7,023 fans in the crowd broke the record for highest-attended Davis Cup daily attendance in Canada, previously set just one day ago. However, even with the home court advantage, Canada was unable to contain a strong serving British team that won 82 percent of points on the first serve and had combined for 17 aces.

Davis Cup: Canada - Great Britain locked at 1-1

The Canadian Davis Cup team sits tied with Great Britain 1-1 following the opening day of action at the Davis Cup World Group first-round tie at TD Place in Ottawa. Great Britain’s top player, Daniel Evans, secured the first victory of the day on Friday, defeating Denis Shapovalov (Richmond Hill, Ont.) 6-3, 6-3, 6-4 before Canada’s No. 1 player, Vasek Pospisil (Vancouver), overcame Kyle Edmund 6-4, 6-1, 7-6(3).

World No. 45 Evans unhinged Shapovalov in one hour and 50 minutes, breaking the 17-year-old Canadian four times in the three-setter to give Great Britain the early lead. While Shapovalov flaunted his powerful serve, firing 13 aces to Evans’ three, young nerves seemed to have contributed to his 39 unforced errors on the scoresheet.
