Team Great Britain, which won the Davis Cup in 2015, announced its team of tour players, which excludes the world No. 1 Andy Murray.
Murray's older brother, Jamie, will come to Ottawa though, along with Kyle Edmund, Dan Evans and Dominic Inglot.
Andy Murray, who suffered an upset loss earlier this week at the Australian Open, could still join the team, according to team captain Leon Smith.
