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.

Just as I suspected. I'm almost certain Canada will sub in Pospisil for Dancevic if the 5th rubber proves decisive. Smart move keeping him fresher for the doubles match and the singles tie where he'll have a much better chance of pulling off an upset....having him waste his energy in a probably hopeless match against Granollers on Day 1 would have been pretty stupid.
