  • Tie Summary

    Canada and Italy will meet for the first time in Davis Cup as the 1976 champions look to reach their first World Group semifinal since 1998. Canada, meanwhile, is through to the World Group quarterfinals for the first time.

    Milos Raonic played a central role as Canada stunned five-time champions Spain 3-2 in the first round, winning two singles rubbers, but it was arguably Frank Dancevic who did the damage as he thumped Marcel Granollers for the loss of just five games in the second rubber. While Granollers re-discovered his way alongside Marc Lopez in the doubles, Raonic ended Spanish hopes with victory over Guillermo Garcia-Lopez.

    Fabio Fognini recovered from a bout of flu to become the hero for Italy as the hosts came through a tough opener against Croatia in Turin. The Italian No. 2 had been forced to miss the opening singles rubber, but recovered to put the hosts 2-1 up alongside Simone Bollelli in the doubles before defeating Ivan Dodig in the decider after Marin Cilic had fought to keep Croatia alive in the tie.
