All the great work done earlier today means nothing if they don't take care of business versus Sweden. Hopefully Alexis still has some gas left in the tank, he played two long matches today.

Vasek vs. Leo Borg is the opening match - Resistance is futile

Happy 3 year anniversary to Zverev choking away the US Open title to Thiem. Despite at one point being up 2sets and a break as well as serving for the match at 5-3 in the 5th, Zverev would lose. He has not played another major final since

Really tight opening set, but Vasek takes it in a tie-break (7-5 was the tie-breaker score).

It's nice to see Canada get the better of Sweden in a shootout for once

It's hard to believe that Leo Borg is #363 in the live rankings based on the way he is playing against Vasek today.

We need a 3rd set as Borg breaks to take set 2 7-5. Vasek had chances to break in the previous game, couldn't cash in.

Shows how good the tour is. He can dominate at futures level but can't win more than a match or two at challenger level.

Lots of players get stuck around the 200s. He's young so hope he can breakthrough (not today though)

Vasek appears to be cramping, time for some Novak magic potion prepared by Frank.

Of course, Vasek breaks and is serving at 3-2 in set 3.

Vasek breaks again and is serving for the opening rubber at 5-2 in set 3. He needs to finish this before the cramps take over.

A backhand that clips the tape and dribbles over for Vasek - Blood and guts from Vasek gives Canada the opening match versus Sweden 7-6 5-7 6-2

I'm not sure, Christopher Eubanks was announced as an alternate yesterday, he could be 1st alternate, Indoor Milos with that serve is very tempting however.

Pickleball is fun to play, but man oh man it's a tough watch (especially doubles)

Diallo breaks early, off to a good start in this very important match.

Edit: Gabriel made that one break hold up taking the opening set 6-4

Gabriel rips a forehand down the line and breaks early in set 2. Really impressive tennis from Gabriel.
