MONTREAL, CANADA: Izak van der Merwe still believes South Africa can pull off an upset after winning the doubles to stay in their Davis Cup by BNP Paribas World Group playoff against Canada.

South African captain John-Laffnie de Jager also has faith in his players and knows his side are not out of it yet.

Canadian captain Martin Laurendeau admits that Canada have to take it one match at a time and they know they cannot take anything for granted after their doubles defeat.
