Canada takes stranglehold lead in Davis Cup qualification
Vasek Pospisil and Milos Raonic teamed up to give Canada a 2-0 lead over South Africa in this best-of-five Davis Cup tie, being played at Uniprix Stadium.
Pospisil opened the afternoon with a straight-set win over Izak van der Merwe. Raonic followed that up with a straight set win over Nikala Scholtz. Raonic, number 15 ranked in the world, admitted he didn't have hist best outing, but added that it's the final result that counts.
Listen in as Abe Hefter talks to the two Canadians after their respective matches: and the special meaning that Montreal has for Raonic.
Pospisil will be back on the court on Saturday, teaming up with Daniel Nestor in the doubles match.
