Vasek Pospisil: Canada will definitely win Davis Cup one day

Canada's Vasek Pospisil sounded extremely optimistic after Canada fell just short of winning it all at the Davis Cup Finals as he believes a young and talented Canadian team will definitely win the competition some time in the future.

Canada wasn't among the top favorites to make a splash at Caja Magica in Madrid but they fought extremely hard in each tie and eventually earned a chance to play against Spain for their maiden Davis Cup glory. Roberto Bautista Agut of Spain beat 19-year-old Felix Auger-Aliassime in the opening rubber of the finals tie, before world No.

1 Rafael Nadal saw off 20-year-old Denis Shapovalov in the following rubber to seal the title for the home side in Madrid. "It feels like a different generation almost,” Pospisil said, per the Davis Cup. “[The 2013 semi-final] is not that long ago but it feels like it's quite a long ago.

Obviously Denis and Felix were super young. “In both cases we had good energy on the team. I think that's why we did well back then, and now, obviously, making the finals, it’s amazing to do that. “There's only so many times that you can do something like that in the course of your career.

And obviously these guys, I'll put money on it, they'll definitely win this competition one day. And myself, hopefully I can be part of that at some point in the next few years. The quality of tennis these two play is pretty amazing to watch."
