Five-time champion Spain has been drawn to face Canada in the 2013 Davis Cup by BNP Paribas World Group first round from 1-3 February. The two nations are set to meet for the first time since 1991.

"Canada was one of the strongest opponents we could have drawn, not only for the quality of the team led by Milos Raonic, but also for the fact that we are the away team and only a week after the Australian Open," Spain's captain Alex Corretja told the Spanish Tennis Federation website.

"That means another long journey and all the effects of the change in time zone. It will be a tough tie but the important thing right now is to focus on the final we have to play in two months against Czech Republic.”

The Czech Republic hosts Spain in this year's final from November 16-18. The Czechs begins next year's campaign away from home against Switzerland.

The United States, the 32-time champion, play Brazil at home, while Argentina takes on Germany. Arnaud Clement's first tie as France’s Davis Cup captain will be at home to Israel. Kazakhstan welcomes Austria, while Italy hosts Croatia.
