Re: Davis Cup

Shapovalov should have never been put in that position - very poor by Laurendeau. Of course a 17 year old is going to be affected by the immense pressure.

Re: Davis Cup

Canada falls 3-2 to Great Britain. I'm tempted to say it was a pretty good effort overall, having pushed a team with two top fifty singles players and a top ten doubles player to a decisive fifth match. Shapovalov's performance tarnished the team. Best of luck in the relegation round.

Re: Davis Cup

Well, it looks like Pospisil was the right choice after all. He almost pulled off the triple. Laurendeau goes with Shapovalov for the fifth match. I'm surprised there wasn't more talk of putting Polansky instead. Edmund was pretty weak on Friday. Polansky would have made Edmund play.

Wouldn't surprise me if Polansky plays a 5th match if its live.

Interesting. I'm going to assume Polansky will see action on Sunday, either in a dead rubber or to replace Pospisil, or the turn to him to win the deciding rubber if Shapovalov loses on Friday.
Sorry to say, but this looks like a clean sweep for the Brits, maybe they win the doubles, but that's it, even the the Brits are favored IMO, just not as much as singles.

Re: Davis Cup

That's the big question. Polansky for sure, the question is who do you trust more Pospisil who despite the fact that he's not playing well has pulled off some clutch matches in DC for Canada, or give the youngster a go and let Shapovalov show what he's got.

My prediction is they go with the veterans and turn to Shapovalov on day 3 if they are up 2-1.

Re: Davis Cup

I wonder what they'll go with in singles? I'm assuming Pospisil and Polansky on Day 1.

Re: Davis Cup

Polansky replaces Raonic. He is officially out citing the abductor injury he sustained at the Ausie Open.

Polansky has just withdrawn from Dallas citing "Davis Cup"...

Re: Davis Cup

Ya, he's not sure how serious it is, but at least there was no "I'll play" statement this time. Stephanie Myles of Open Court seems to doubt his participation in Ottawa. I say give him a few more days. I'm likely just setting myself up for disappointment.

Re: Davis Cup

I'd be very surprised if Raonic played.

Re: Davis Cup

I recall (might be wrong) that Polansky made himself unavailable for selection. I think he said he was contemplating it on the NCR Podcast but don't quote me as I might be completely wrong.
