  • Canadian Challenge awaits India in the Davis Cup World Group Playoff

"It's my first five-set match, for sure the longest I have been on the court", Shapovalov said.

Ramkumar seemed to step up his game from the third set, amidst fierce competition from the 202 ranked Schnur.

Ramkumar Ramanathan fetched the crucial win but Yuki Bhambri made the day memorable even in defeat as India and Canada shared the honours on day one of the Davis Cup World Group playoff tie, here.

Denis Shapovalov defeated Yuki Bhambri 7-6 (2), 6-4, 6-7 (8), 4-6, 6-1 in a marathon match that lasted almost four hours as Canada leveled the Davis Cup World Group Play-off tie 1-1 on Friday.

Schnur not only never had played in a Davis Cup before, he'd never played in a best-of-five series. Schnur looked down and out, trailing by two sets to one, and down by a break in the fourth set but found energy to fight when Ramkumar dropped serve immediately.

Ramkumar Ramanathan fought tooth and nail to clinch a 5-7, 7-6 (4), 7-5, 7-5 win over Brayden Schnur and put the Indians up 1-0.

So the correct phrasing would be that neither of them had won a "live match" at the Davis Cup before.

They emerged for the second half with brisker pace and a more cogent shape. "Only it is time to wait and enjoy him". Tottenham's Wembley woes continued after they were left frustrated in this stalemate with Swansea .


And Denis Shapovalov, of Richmond Hill, Ont., who went from No. 250 to No. 51 and had lost both of his matches to Great Britain including the infamous implosion when he defaulted and the match awarded to the visitors in February in Ottawa, when he batted a ball in frustration and struck chair umpire Arnaud Gabas of France, breaking a bone in the eye socket. He then secured the match's first break in the seventh game of the second set to take 2-0 lead. Bhupathi said the draw has come out exactly they wanted. "I believed in myself in the fifth", Shapovalov said.

The Sports Ministry has left out veteran Leander Paes and Saketh Myneni from the initial list of tennis players, who have been chosen for monthly allowance for their preparations for the next year's big-ticket events and the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

He won his first two sets 7-6 (7-2) and 6-4 against India No. 2 Yuki Bhambri.

However, Yuk Bhambri won a break point of his own and forced the third set to a tie-break.

Shapovalov eventually won the second set 6-4, putting Canada in a good position to level the tie.

Bopanna-Raja lost 5-7, 5-7, 7-5, 3-6 to seasoned campaigners Nestor and Pospisil in two hours and 52 minutes on Saturday allowing the hosts to take advantage in the play-off. And what we watched Friday night will make Sunday's single games no place for a nervous Canadian, regardless.
