Canada loses Davis Cup tie after Shapovalov's outburst

Great Britain are looking to win this tie to progress through to the quarter-finals, which would also ensure that they avoid a World Group playoff match in September.

Great Britain moved to the verge of a Davis Cup victory against Canada after Jamie Murray and Dom Inglot won a tight doubles rubber.

The 17-year-old was was already trailing by two sets and was down 2-1 in the third against Britain's Kyle Edmund when his frustration boiled over.

The pair defeated Daniel Nestor and Vasek Pospisil 7-6, 6-7, 7-6, 6-3 to put the visitors 2-1 up before the reverse singles on Sunday. In the end, he said the treatment he received Saturday night was the difference and that Sunday's singles match was the best he felt over the course of the weekend.

Stand-in British number one Evans went into the clash as the favourite on both form and ranking - 45 to 133 - while Pospisil was publicly wavering about whether to play on Saturday evening because of a knee problem.

I can say how happy I am with what he did - except when he was banned. "I make a lot of mistakes, but I have to make decisions". With Aguero on the sidelines, it was City's trio of dazzling young forwards who stole the show.

They were giddy by the time Evans netted a backhand volley to relinquish the final point of the ensuing first-set tiebreaker and beyond that after Pospisil broke his opponent's serve in Game 3 of the second set, capped by a spectacular forehand return. He served so well on the big points, my conversion rate must have been diabolical. It's tough mentally to keep going and going but it's the start of the year and I have to keep going until I get a week off when I get home. He went up two games to none, but Pospisil had four aces to win the third.

Evans claimed an early lead at the start of the fourth however he was pegged back by the relentless Pospisil, who forced another tie break. Canada had a chance to take the first set at 6-5, and Inglot's heart would have been in his mouth when his second serve clipped the tape.

The fiery Canadian produced another break in the third game of the next set, taking a 2-1 lead, but then he lost his way with his own serve: in the sixth and eighth games of that set, which ended with Evans prevailing 6-3, and again in the first game of the fourth set.

Evans had chances to make that a double break but, as in the opening set, Pospisil resisted well and then rediscovered his missing spark as he levelled at 3-3. He played well and obviously the crowd carried him through. But Evans composed himself and came back to win the set 6-3.

Three times he had 0-30, and eventually two break points when Pospisil served for the set, but each time the Canadian used his big weapon to snuff out the chances.
