Next tie 12-14 September 2014
Canada has been handed a potentially tricky home tie against Colombia as it seeks to remain in the World Group for 2015. The Colombians came out on top in the nations' last meeting in 2010, but it is Canada who have the edge in the overall head-to-head, leading 5-4.
Last tie 31 January-2 February 2014
Canada were unable to field either of their top two players, Milos Raonic and Vasek Pospisil, in their first round tie against Japan due to injury and suffered a heavy 4-1 defeat. Frank Dancevic had levelled the tie on the first day but lost alongside Daniel Nestor in the doubles and was then forced to retire with an abdominal strain to hand the hosts victory the following day.
Canada equalled its best Davis Cup result, achieved in 1913, by reaching the semifinals for a second time in 2013. Since the introduction of the World Group in 1981, Canada has won just two ties - defeating Spain in last year's first round and Italy in the quarterfinals. Canada's Harry Fritz played in the longest Davis Cup singles rubber in terms of the number of game (100), beating Venezuela's Jorge Andrew 1614 119 911 46 119 in 1982. Meanwhile, another Canadian, Dale Power, was involved in the joint-longest singles set in the competition's history - 46 games - in 1976.
