Canada avoided the sweep as Ottawa’s Gabriela Dabrowski and Carol Zhao of Richmond Hill, Ont., defeated Ana Bogdan and Raluca Olaru 4-6, 6-1, 10-6 in doubles.

"We knew it was going to be difficult," said Canadian team coach Sylvain Bruneau. "At least it was an opportunity for our team to play at a very high level in front of a big crowd.
