Wow, although I'm excited that Canada has a great shot to win this tie, it feels a bit cheap because Spain's top 3 players - Nadal, Ferrer and Almagro - aren't playing.

Regardless, I hope Canada seizes this opportunity. A victory in this tie, regardless of Spain's weaker roster, would still be huge.

Well ... to be fair, Rafa, Ferru, and Feli all said that they wouldn't be participating in DC this year, after the last tie.

And the news that Nico would be pulling out with an injury didn't hit the interwebs until early last week. I think he went further in the AO than most expected him to, and he played some hard matches.

That said, I think the doubles will be the tournament blockbuster. Kind of excited for that.
