Shapovalov can clinch Davis win
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.
