Absolutely thrilled for Canada and now with the addition of Jesse Levine, a decent player is going to get left off but Milos and Frankie were rockstars this weekend and Vasek and Danny were solid even with the loss.

I also want to thank the Spanish fans for being very gracious and classy despite Spain's defeat. I'm sure with the return of Nadal and your top players, Spain will be back with a bang next year and contending for the title once again .

If Canada plays Italy, it will be in Canada. If we beat Italy, and play lets say USA, that tie will also be in Canada.

Vasek did beat Seppi at the rogers cup last year though

Seppi is better than Vasek, but given the surface, with 2 shots at it, I like the chances that our #2 wins 1 match. Even if they don't I think our doubles is favoured over theirs.

You are aware that Vasek is 1-0 lifetime against Seppi?

nope. USA/Canada will be in the USA.

Only way we play the SF in Canada is if Brazil gets there which isn't happening.

Can't think that far ahead though, gotta focus on beating Italy

Yes, but given what they've done, it's a fluke.

I still think the Canucks will beat Italia though.

No fluke, Vasek was just better than Seppi that night, and the crowd was a huge part of it. He will have that same crowd(minus me unless they put the tie in St. John's). Seppi is better than Vasek but he could do it again given the oppurtunity, it's not Nole vs. Rochus kind of unlikely.

Missing Nadal, Ferrer, Almagro, Verdasco and Lopez most likely.

I'd go with Frank, better Indoor HC player after Milos, imo.

wow the low tier of spanish players is really weak these days, they use to line up 3 world class teams some time ago.

anyways deserved win for Canada, congratulations.
