Team Canada has qualified for the 2024 Davis Cup. On Saturday, Canada beat South Korea three matches to one in the qualifying round at IGA Stadium in Montreal, Quebec.

The Canadian stars on the weekend were Gabriel Diallo of Montreal, Quebec and Vasek Pospisil of Vernon, British Columbia. In singles action on Friday, Diallo defeated Soon-woo Kwon 6-4, 6-4, and Pospisil defeated Seong-chan Hong, 6-4, 6-3. Then in doubles action on Saturday, Ji-sung Nam and Min-kyu Song defeated Alexis Galarneau of Laval, Quebec and Pospisil 6-4, 6-7, 6-3. Diallo then won his second match of the weekend, as he came through with a 7-5, 4-6, 6-1 win over Hong.

There were some tense moments in Diallo’s win over Hong on Saturday. Diallo was not doing very well when he came to the net, and was significantly more productive when he stayed at the baseline. Hong was able to utilize his speed better at the net, but simply did not have the power or accuracy in his game when Diallo stayed back.

Canada is one of 14 nations to have qualified for the Davis Cup in 2024. They are joined by the United States, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Italy, Spain, Czech Republic, Great Britain, Slovakia, Finland, France, Germany, and the Netherlands. On Sunday, Argentina is facing Kazakhstan, and Chile is facing Peru for the final two spots.
