Canada is a nation that has competed at the Hopman Cup tennis tournament on two occasions, in 2004 and 2014. In 2004, the team of Maureen Drake and Frank Dancevic was defeated in the qualification play-off and as such did not compete in the round robin, except to stand in for the injured Belgium team for the final round robin tie against Hungary.[1] Milos Raonic and Eugenie Bouchard represented Canada in 2014 and finished second in Group A.[2][3] Bouchard will represent Canada once again at the upcoming 2015 Hopman Cup, this time with Vasek Pospisil.[4]
