    Ramos wins the 5th rubber 7-5 6-4. Too many forehand errors and generally sloppy play cost Dancevic this match. Oh well.

    Job well done Canada! Bring on Italy in April!

    The upcoming tie against Italy is certainly winnable, but I think Canada will be the slight underdog. Seppi will be no pushover, so I think his match against Raonic can go either way. After that, Italy has way more depth with three other guys in the top 100. So in order for Canada to win, I think Raonic will need to win his two matches and get a minor upset in one other match. Actually, I guess Canada might be the favorite in the doubles match.

    I think Canada will be the slight favorite as Raonic will be the favorite in both singles matches and will be the favorite for doubles.

    italians have good doubles team. if nestor and pospisil don't step up their game they will be in tough against the italians. but the fast indoor court will be an advantage for the cdns so we'll see. should be good to watch.

    Canada has just too much talent for Spain without Nadal or ferrer playing.

    I just found out that there is no recording allowed. I got a warning from security staff. It says no recording devices allowed in the fine print of the ticket.
