Canada is leaving its Davis Cup quarter-final tie without a victory.

The Canadians fell in a pair of singles matches on Sunday as Belgium completed a 5-0 sweep.

"Obviously this isn't the performance we wanted," said Canada's captain, Martin Laurendeau. "We were hoping to come away with a better result, but it didn't turn out that way. All we can do now is look ahead to next year and hope for a good draw so we can come back and try [to] do it again."

Kimmer Coppejans defeated Frank Dancevic, of Niagara Falls, Ont., 2-6, 6-2, 6-3 in the first best-of-three set match of the day. Steve Darcis followed up with a win over Filip Peliwo of Vancouver 6-4, 6-3.

Belgium clinched the tie on Saturday after a win in doubles action against Daniel Nestor and Adil Shamasdin.

Canada will play in the 2016 World Group for the fifth consecutive year. Its first-round opponent will be determined in September after the official draw.
