The first round of the men’s 2017 Davis Cup begins February 3 and continues until February 5.

The weekend’s matchups come one week after the finale of the 2017 Australian Open, where Roger Federer went back to Switzerland with the trophy in singles.

Federer isn’t participating in the Davis Cup this time around, but some of the players are seeking to right the ship following disappointing showings in the Australian Open.

Two of those are Novak Djokovic of Serbia and Nick Kyrgios of Australia, who highlight the field and are the tournament’s only top-15 players in the first round. But there are plenty of other matches that figure to be competitive, as teams look to advance to the quarterfinals, which will be held from April 7-9.

Canada vs. Britain can be seen on BBC in the UK and other scores, highlights and videos are available on the Davis Cup website. In the United States, some coverage is available on the Tennis Channel.
