‚ÄčEugenie Bouchard lost in singles competition for the second time in as many days as Romania defeated Canada in a Fed Cup World Group playoff tie.

Andreea Mitu defeated Bouchard 4-6, 6-4, 6-1 on Sunday to give Romania the edge in the best-of-five series. Romania clinched the tie when Alexandra Dulgheru defeated Francoise Abanda 3-6, 7-5, 6-2.

Mitu, ranked 104th in the world, was a late replacement for 33rd-ranked Irina-Camelia Begu, who was injured in a loss to Abanda on Saturday.

Bouchard, ranked seventh in the world, struggled in both her singles matches in the tie, losing 6-4, 6-4 to Dulgheru Saturday after Abanda's win gave Canada a 1-0 edge.

In doubles, Canada's Gabriela Dabrowski and Sharon Fichman, defeated Andreea Mitu and Raluca Olaru, Romania, 6-1, 4-6, 10-5. 

Romania will play in the elite eight-team Fed Cup World Group in 2016, while Canada is relegated to the World Group II division.
