France vs Canada by Marci
First I have to say that I am quite surprised by this odds and I simply cant figure out why is it so high, they gave more chances to Kazahstan to beat Serbia in belgrade and Serbia will be represented by unbeatable Novak Djokovic!!!
In Guadolope, France we will see a match of first round Davis Cup between hosts who are 2nd contender for the title led by new captain Yannick Noah and Canada. France is a clear favourite led by all 4 top 20 players Tsonga, Gasquet Monfils and Simon and they will face up against top 10 player Raonic, top 50 Pospisil and well Dancevic, but I doubt that he will play any match.
Now I wont go in too much details, I will just say my vision of this match, Canada can win this because Milos Raonic is great player in great form and even tho it is played on clay, he can still use his set of skills and great service to win both matches and dont forget that he now have in his coaching staff court specialist Carlos Moya. MIlos against french playres has 3-1 against Gasquet, losing 2-1 against Tsonga, but won last match (in 2014) and that match was only played on clay, won match this season against Monfils and has 3-1 against Simon with 2 wins on clay (including one on his home court - Roland Garros) so it is very possible that Raonic who has lost only 2 matches this season (Nadal and Murray) win both his matches.
For third point Pospisil dont stand any chances of winning it in single, but he is great at doubles and won 6 tournaments (winning WImbledon is his biggest succeess) and he will pair up with legend of doubles in tennis Daniel Nestor who won in his very long career 88 tournaments from which 8 was grand slams and 4 times was French Open so it seems that he loves to play at French clay.
IN my opinion this combination can win against any combination French coach decide to put, I dont think that 2 great single players can win in 5 sets against 2 double specialists, that I am coach of Canada I would let Dancevic play first day just to rest Pospisil for Saturday match in doubles, because it will be vital match for win in this round. I will repeat that France is favourite , but this odd is way way too high so there is value in betting some low amount on chance that Raonic will win 2 and doubles will win their match.
