Canada vs Spain Davis Cup tie roster announced

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2013

Call it a blessing in disguise. Next week’s Davis Cup tie between team Canada and team Spain out at the University of British Columbia will be missing some of the biggest names in tennis, but the odds of the home side advancing over the top-ranked Spaniards just got a lot better.

Rosters for the two teams were announced today. No. 1-ranked Spain will be missing Rafael Nadal, David Ferrer and Fernando Verdasco, sending a team comprising of Nicolas Almagro Guillermo Garcia-Lopez, Marcel Granollers, Marc Lopez and Albert Ramos. Representing the home side will be world #15 Milos Raonic, Vancouver’s own Vasek Pospisil, doubles specialist Daniel Nestor and Frank Dancevic.

While spectators will be missing the star power that Nadal and Ferrer would have brought to the UBC court, what would likely have been a one-sided affair has suddenly gotten a lot more interesting. Missing their two top stars, the Spanish squad is suddenly in tough against a Canadian squad that will have the crowd on their side.

This Davis Cup tie between Spain and Canada promises to be a barn-burner of an event, with two talented teams going shot-for-shot for the right to advance to the Davis Cup. Get your Davis Cup Tickets today to witness world-class tennis in front of a raucous UBC crowd!
