Canada misses Davis Cup semi-finals

Defending champions Canada made a completely unexpected exit from the semi-finals of the Davis Cup finals in Malaga. A 1:2 loss against Finland was the absence of injured striker Felix Auger-Aliassime. For starters, Milos Raonic created the short works of Patrick Gauchovalda. At second singles, Otto Virtanen defeated Gabriel Diallo 4:6, 5:7. Virtanen, ranked 171 in the ATP rankings, finally became the hero in a decisive doubles match with Harry Heliovara. The duo pulled off the first surprise of the tournament with a 7:5, 6:3 win over Alexis Galarneau/Vasek Pospisil. The Czech Republic and Australia will decide the Scandinavians’ opponents in the semi-finals from Wednesday.
