Canada started strong dominating Italy at the Davis Cup Finals Group stages in Bologna. The defending champions proved that they can win even without their two best-ranked players on the ATP tour.
Our favourite Canada vs Sweden match predictions
Sweden will have to beat the defending champions in order to keep their chance for some of the first two places in the group. Whether that is possible, check in our predictions and tips article.
Canada to win 3-0
Canada stunned Italy on their home court and they did that with a 3-0 win. What makes this result even more impressive is the fact that Canada did that with the two youngest players on the team in the singles matches. Now, Canada is in a promising situation and will most likely advance to the Final 8 tournament. Whether Frank Dancevic goes out with Diallo and Galarneau again in the singles matches, Canada has the momentum and the equality to beat Sweden who lost 3-0 in the first match against Chile.
Can the defending champions book their ticket to the Final 8?
Now that we have our Canada vs Sweden prediction, let’s see how these teams performed in the previous editions of the Davis Cup.
Seemingly out of nowhere Canda won the Davis Cup last season for the first time in history. Felix Auger-Aliassime was the key man for the team but he is not on the roster this year as he has not been playing well recently and is still recovering from injury. Denis Shapovalov is in Bologna but he did not play against Italy. The world No. 31 will probably play against Sweden and is the favorite to beat any of the opponents. Pospisil and Galarnau proved to be great team for the doubles match and they will make things go in Canada’s favor again.
- Denis Shapovalov
- Vasek Pospisil
- Gabriel Diallo
- Alexis Galarneau
Captain: Frank Dancevic
Sweden has been one of the most successful countries in the Davis Cup winning a total of 7 titles and finishing as a runner up on five occasions. The last time they won was in 1998 and they finished third in Group A last year. Things does not look well for the Sweds who lost 3-0 against Chile in the first round. They simply have no players on top level and are no treat for Canada or any team in the group. The momentum and the team chemistry is something that lacks within the Sweden team and they will most likely be eliminated after the matchup against Canada.
- Mikael Ymer
- Elias Ymer
- Filip Bergevi
- Leo Borg
