Both teams had dominant 3-0 wins in their opening ties, with Canada beating Greece and Australia seeing off Germany.
For Canada it was a continuation of their excellent form from the Davis Cup 2019 a couple of months ago, when they reached the final before losing to host nation Spain, having overcome Italy, USA, Australia and Russia to get there.
Canada vs Australia – Previous Meeting
It was a Davis Cup 2019 quarter-final tie back in late November that saw Canada beat Australia 2-1 at the Estadio Manolo Santana at the Caja Mágica in Madrid, Spain.
This tie in the ATP Cup 2020 will feature an identical singles match to that played at the Davis Cup, with Denis Shapovalov again going up against Alex de Minaur.
With Milos Raonic ruled out of the Davis Cup 2019 with injury prior to the tournament and Félix Auger-Aliassime missing most of the finals, Shapovalov and Vasek Pospisil were instrumental in guiding Canada to the final. However, it was de Minaur who came out on top in Madrid, beating Shapovalov 3-6 6-3 7-5.
