Very close I think. Raonic huge favourite to win his 2 singles (in last 3 years he is 14-0 on this surface, 33-1 in sets ... including DC & San Jose matches). Italy probably is favourite in other 3 but needs to sweep them to take the tie. Dubs might be more of a toss-up now with Bolelli out (breaking up the #3 team this year) ...Bracciali still very good doubles player but it is a new team .. note that Pops & Nestor took Spain dubs (#2) to 5 sets in R1.

Bolelli out of doubles? :( Fogster to still hero it up, of course. 3-2 Italy.

Levine replaces Dancevic in the team who injured his knee during practice and Pospisil will be the other singles player.

I hope Canada, but not so sure. It should be really interesting.

I'll go with Canada, Raonic should win both singles and then either they win the doubles or Pospisil beats Fog or Seppi.

MTF poll currently has 60-40 for Canada over Italy and 67-33 Serbia over US ... sounds about right to me.

Is Schiavone playing for Italy?

Fellow Canadians, do you think the sport community, in particular major networks outside of Sportsnet will pick up on how big of a deal this is? Canada aren't usually the best at Davis Cup, so this is getting to be a pretty big deal.

Canada 3-2 hopefully, although I hope for a 2-0 for Canada tonight.

If Pospisil beats Seppi, then it will be 3-0 Canada.

worse thing is, at the moment there's a huge gap between what Bracciali can do for us in the doubles and what Bolelli brings to the table. his injury really makes us, at least, solid underdogs!

Fog will have to be extremely inspired. hell, that's probably an understatement :lol:

Yah but we may have dropped the ball by playing Vasek in singles today ... and thus have him tired for tomorrow's doubles.

The mugs of the Davis Cup world. Similar to 2010 US Open when Youzhny went up against Wawrinka in the QF, except worse.
