World Group Play-off

The deadline for official team nominations is 10 days before the tie begins.

Tie preview

Canada will host a dangerous Colombian team in what promises to be an intriguing World Group play-off tie. The Colombians won the last meeting between the two, an Americas Zone Group I second round encounter in 2010, but Canada have matured as a team since then, as its run to the semifinals in last year's competition proved. Canada are marginally ahead in the head-to-head record, leading 5-4.


Colombia had to work hard but were ultimately rewarded in their tie against Dominican Republic in April. Santiago Giraldo and Alejandro Falla both posted five set victories before Juan-Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah won the doubles in straight sets to see the Colombians through. Earlier in the year, a Canada team suffering from a variety of injury problems, lost to a Japan team boasting an in-form Kei Nishikori, who won three points for his team.
