Great Britain will travel to Canada in the first round of the Davis Cup in February.

The World Group draw for 2017 opened up the possibility of a repeat of the Wimbledon final between Andy Murray and Canadian number one Milos Raonic.

The tie will take place from February 3-5, the weekend after the Australian Open, meaning a lengthy trip for all involved.

Because the last tie between the teams was before 1970 - a victory for Britain in Bournemouth in 1967 - the host country was decided by lot.

Britain’s defence of their Davis Cup title ended in the semi-finals last weekend with defeat by Argentina while Canada, semi-finalists in 2013, beat Chile to maintain their World Group status.
