About the Team:

Canada’s team for each Fed Cup tie is selected by the team captain. Sylvain Bruneau has been the captain of the Canadian team since 2010 after having spent 6 years as the team coach. Under his leadership, Canada was able to secure a spot in World Group I, which features the eight best nations in the world, in 2015, following a sequence of seven consecutive victories. On August 1st, 2018, Heidi El Tabakh has been named captain of the Canadian Fed Cup team. She will replace Sylvain Bruneau, who will now focus on his role as the Head Coach for the National Women’s Program. Teams are announced at least 10 days prior to the start of a tie and the captain can select up to four players. Over the past few years, many players have represented Canada in Fed Cup, including: Francoise Abanda, Bianca Andreescu, Eugenie Bouchard, Gabriela Dabrowski, Sharon Fichman, Rebecca Marino, Charlotte Robillard-Millette, Katherine Sebov, and Carol Zhao.
