Next tie 13-15 September 2013
Canada will look to complete a breakthrough year by reaching its first World Group final when Martin Laurendeau's team take on Serbia in the 2013 Davis Cup semifinals. The two nations have never met before but both will have an eye on a place in the final against either Argentina or Czech Republic.
Last tie 5-7 April 2013
Canada followed its stunning first round victory over five-time champions Spain with a 3-1 quarterfinal win against Italy in Vancouver. Milos Raonic won two singles rubbers for Canada while Daniel Nestor and Vasek Pospisil won a thrilling doubles tie 15-13 in the fifth set to edge out Daniele Bracciali and Fabio Fognini and hand Raonic the opportunity to clinch a spot in the semifinals.
Canada has equalled its best Davis Cup result, achieved in 1913, by reaching the semifinals for a second time. Since the introduction of the World Group in 1981, Canada has won just two ties - defeating Spain in this year's first round and Italy in the quarterfinals. Canada's Harry Fritz played in the longest Davis Cup singles rubber in terms of the number of game (100), beating Venezuela's Jorge Andrew 1614 119 911 46 119 in 1982. Meanwhile, another Canadian, Dale Power, was involved in the joint-longest singles set in the competition's history - 46 games - in 1976.
