Vancouver tennis fans are frothing over this weekend's Davis Cup showdown between Canada and Spain this weekend.

The UBC Thunderbird Sports Centre has been transformed from a hockey venue into a world-class tennis facility. The week-long transformation has seen 1,300 more bleacher seats added and 10 cameras installed to follow the ball during the matches.

On Feb. 1-3, Canada competes for just the fourth time in the elite Davis Cup since it was established in 1900. Last year was the first

Canada has a good chance of upsetting Spain, who is without four of their highest ranked players, reported The Canadian Press.

Rafael Nadal and Nicolas Almgaro are injured, while David Ferrer and Fernando Verdasco chose to miss the event to rest.

Canada's Milos Raonic, 22, and veteran Daniel Nestor, 40, could surprise on the hard court against the Spanish players who shine on clay, said The Globe And Mail.
