Raonic is questionable for his match tomorrow with an illness.

Pospisil on the court for the first match against Sela. Up an early break at 2-0.

Raonic had food poisoning but sounds like he'll play the second match.

It's on sportsnet.ca and Sportsnet One.

First set to Pospisil in tie-break.

Interesting stat...with Raonic at 31 and Pospisil at 124, Canada is the only country in the world to have two players in the top 125 21 years of age or younger.

Nadal destroyed Gasquet, so no sign of fatigue. Federer also beat Hewitt.

Crowd is crazy in Israel. Sela climbing the chair to talk to the umpire...

Damn, two set points squandered by Pospisil. Sela takes the second set in tie-break.

Pospisil rolls through the 3rd set 6-1. Up a break at 2-1 in the 4th.

What a complete turnaround

Sela blows by Pospisil in the tiebreak and we're heading to a 5th set.

Just following the score online but Pospisil has stormed back from being down 2-0 in the fifth set to being up 4-2 Hopefully he can hold on for a few more games!

Pospisil serving through the singing to close out the match.

Ya, very tough crowd and tough match against a vet for the Vasek (only 21). He handled himself incredibly well.

I had to leave halfway through the 4th set breaker and then saw that Pospisil was down 0-2 in the fifth. Figured it was over. Wow, what a great job he did to win it!

For anyone that wants to watch, http://www.sportsnet.ca/tennis/live_atp_tennis/

Milos took the first set just as I got home.

Well Raonic loses. Lots of rust in his game. Makes that Pospisil win HUGE. Now it's best of 3...

Pretty clear he went to the bathroom to throw up when you looked at his face after. Don't know how he's going to win Sunday

Argentina up 2-0 on the road against the defending champs


Still gotta like Canada's chances. All 3 remaining matches are winnable as Raonic should hopefully feel a lot better in a couple of days. Posposil might be in tough playing 3 matches in 3 days though.

Nestor/Pospisil will have a tough match tomorrow. Would love to see them with a win.

I'm glad the ump threatened the crowd with taking a point away if they didn't shut up When Canada was tossing the ball up on a serve.

Just up to see that Raonic was replaced by Polansky and Polanksy is down 2 sets against Sela. So unless Polansky can pull off a huge comeback then it's down to Pospisil again. Can Vasek get another big win this weekend...

Damn, Milos must be really ill. Hope he recovers quickly.

In principle Pospisil should be able to beat the #2 Israeli guy (Weintraub?), but three big matches in three days is a lot to ask.

e: big match in the World Group as well, Djokovic is playing Del Potro and needs to win to keep Serbia's hopes alive. Delpo took the first set 7-6 though.

Djok retired so Argentina won. Polansky doesn't have any weapons against Sela, he is playing too passively. Down 2 sets to love and 4-3.
