Davis Cup: Raonic def. Seppi 6-4 6-4 3-6 7-5, Canada wins 3-1

Awesome result. Huge for Canadian tennis.

Milos struggled in the 3rd set when Seppi started reading his serve but he stayed focussed and managed to break at 6-5 in the 4th for the win

This indeed huge for Canadian tennis it just shows that Canada is becoming a tennis power now. This tie was actually tougher than the one against Spain because they had their C list team. Milos did good to beat two top 30 Italian players Fognini and a top 20 player Andreas Seppi. Seppi played Milos tough he really held it together in the end though. It was good to see Milos rise to the occasion and deal with the pressure this guy is indeed for real. This is just an incredible result for Canadian tennis, but the other guys like Vasek Posposil and Daniel Nestor deserve credit they won a tight doubles match. It was a team effort for Canada.

Re: Davis Cup: Raonic def. Seppi 6-4 6-4 3-6 7-5, Canada wins 3-1

congrats Servonic and all canadians for this amazing result.

good effort by Andreas but this tie was basically lost with Bole's injury, had an epic Fognini triumph in the 5th rubber written all over it before... I know the doubles wouldn't have been a lock with Simone's presence but really makes you wonder considering how pushed were Nestor and Vasek against our improvised duo.

despite the good run this year I truly hope Barazzutti gets sacked, unfortunately doesn't seem likely at all but he's one big prick and sometimes too tough to stand, hurts the team union too.

Big win for Canada, just wondering are they home or away for the semi final vs Serbia?

Great result for Canadian tennis.

Not a strong second half for Raonic but his serve got him through.

Actually no. Unlike Raonic, Andy has a chance of achieving the ultimate goal in tennis: to become world no.1. If he wants to do that then a good clay season is very important. Unfortunately, playing on a hard court just before the start of the clay season will not help him much to get ready for a surface he struggles with.

that didn't bother Djokovic, he still showed up to beat the USA.

Then he'll just go play on clay and still beat Murray.

Him and Tomic both come through!

Without them, their respective countries would starve to death and descend into a state of turmoil.

Everyone should pay their respects.

It did not bother him, no. Then again he has already achieved world no.1 status. Also your Djokovic example doesn't really work for you as he picked up an injury, who knows how that will affect him?

Also he was playing in the real Davis cup, GB are just trying to qualify.
