Canada’s Davis Cup team recorded the best results in his history—a finals berth—in 2019. Denis Shapovalov, Félix Auger-Aliassime, Brayden Schnur, Vasek Pospisil and captain Frank Dancevic joined forces to overpower Slovakia for a spot in the Davis Cup Finals and then posted back-to-back wins over Italy, the US, Australia and Russia in Madrid. In the end, it was the Spanish armada led by Rafael Nadal that stopped Canada in its tracks in the ultimate showdown, depriving the nation of its very first Davis Cup title.
Before the new format was introduced in 2019, Canada was among the 16 World Group teams for seven consecutive years, since 2012. In 2013, the squad played its way to the semi-finals with victories over Spain and Italy. Canada’s previous semi-final appearance was at its very first Davis Cup in 1913.
Daniel Nestor holds a number of Canadian Davis Cup records: most ties played (53), most wins (48) and most wins in doubles (33).
