Next tie 4-6 March 2016
Canada face a difficult trip to France in the World Group first round.
Last tie 17-19 July 2015
Milos Raonic and Vasek Pospisil were sorely missed as Canada were whitewashed 5-0 by Belgium in their World Group quarterfinal. Frank Dancevic and Davis Cup rookie Filip Peliwo produced commendable efforts but they were ultimately beaten by Steve Darcis and David Goffin in the opening singles. Ruben Bemelmans and Kimmer Coppejans then triumphed in the doubles over Daniel Nestor and Amil Shamasdin to secure the tie for Belgium. Then Coppejans and Darcis added insult to injury on the final day of the weekend.
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.
