Almagro is out

MADRID -- Nicolas Almagro has withdrawn from Spain's Davis Cup first-round matches against Canada because of an injury.

The Spanish tennis federation said Saturday that Guillermo Garcia-Lopez, ranked 85th, will take Almagro's place in his debut for Spain's national team.

Media reports said Almagro, who reached the quarterfinals of the Australian Open, has a leg injury.

Garcia-Lopez joins fellow newcomer Albert Ramos and doubles team Marcel Granollers and Marc Lopez for the series in Vancouver on Feb. 1-3.

This means the five-time champions will be without their top three players, with Rafael Nadal injured and David Ferrer sitting out the round.

With Nadal out, Ferrer led Spain to last year's final and lost to the Czech Republic.

Canada will be led by 15th-ranked Milos Raonic.
I think Granollers and GGL are likely to be the singles players, but any way Spain plays this, they are in serious trouble unless Nadal or Ferrer decides to save them
