About the Team:

Canada’s team for each Davis Cup tie is selected by the team captain. Frank Dancevic became Canada’s Davis Cup captain at the end of 2017, replacing the longstanding Martin Laurendeau who had skipped the squad since 2004. Teams are announced at least 10 days prior to the start of a tie and the captain can select up to five players, including himself as a playing captain if he so chose. Over the past few years, many players have represented Canada in Davis Cup, including: Philip Bester, Frank Dancevic, Daniel Nestor, Filip Peliwo, Peter Polansky, Vasek Pospisil, Milos Raonic, Brayden Schnur, Adil Shamasdin, Denis Shapovalov and Félix Auger-Aliassime.
