Great Britain are drawn away to Canada in the first round of the 2017 Davis Cup.

Great Britain have drawn Canada away in the first round of the 2017 Davis Cup.

Leon Smith's team failed to defend their title this season as they were recently beaten 3-2 by Argentina in the semi-finals.

From February 3 to 5, Great Britain will kick off their new campaign in the World Group by travelling to Canada, where Andy Murray could go up against Milos Raonic.

Murray defeated the 25-year-old to win his second Wimbledon title at the All England Club earlier this summer.

Britain, who won their first Davis Cup crown in 79 years in 2015, have played Canada in the competition once before in 1967.
