Nicolas Almagro, Marcel Granollers, Marc Lopez and Albert Ramos will represent Spain in its Feb. 1-3 Davis Cup tie against Canada in Vancouver, team captain Alex Corretja said Tuesday.
The tie will be "very complicated," but I am confident in the players "and their commitment to make Spanish fans happy," Corretja said.
"This is a unique competition and we are going into it with the same hopes as in all years, (and) I am convinced that our players will give everything they have. It's a challenge that we love to take on," Spanish Tennis Federation president Jose Luis Escañuela said.
The team will travel to Canada on Saturday or Sunday, depending on the results of the Australian Open.
Granollers and Lopez are competing in doubles in Melbourne and have advanced to the semis.
The addition of Ramos and absence of David Ferrer are the only changes to a Spanish team that lost the Davis Cup final to the Czech Republic 3-2 last November.
The Davis Cup, tennis' premier international team competition, is played throughout the year, with the finals usually scheduled for early December. EFE
