ED­MON­TON — De­nis Shapo­valov can to­day send Canada through to the World Group for 2018 af­ter a huge dou­bles win put Canada up 2-1 in its best-of-five Davis Cup tie against In­dia.

Daniel Nestor and Vasek Pospisil beat Ro­han Bopanna and Pu­rav Raja 7-5, 7-5, 5-7, 6-3 in dou­bles on Satur­day to put Canada in the driver’s seat head­ing into two sin­gles matches that will wrap up play to­day.

Cana­dian cap­tain Martin Lau­ren­deau ex­pects Shapo­valov to be rar­ing to go against Ramku­mar Ra­manathan. “We have one more point to win and the fo­cus is on De­nis right now be­cause he is first up,” Lau­ren­deau said.
