MONTREAL, CANADA: Canadian No. 1 Milos Raonic who won two points for his nation this weekend including the decisive third point, reflects on the tie and what a great feeling it was to close it out for Canada. He is proud to be part of a new era for Canadian tennis.

Captain Martin Laurendeau looks forward to the World Group next year where Canada are sure to play one of the top 8 nations. He hopes that the draw for the World Group will produce a home tie for Canada as that would help in what will be a difficult first round match-up.

South African captain John-Laffnie de Jager reflects on what a blow it was to the team when Rik de Voest hurt his wrist and had to pull out. It was a great opportunity for Nikala Scholtz to join the team, to test out where he is with his tennis and see what he needs to work on.

Izak van der Merwe was disappointed with his serve this weekend, he felt it let him down, and it didn't help that he had some back problems ahead of the tie.
