MEDELLIN, Colombia -- Canada stayed undefeated at the Fed Cup Americas Zone Group 1 after winning two matches against Columbia on Friday.

Toronto's Sharon Fichman won the first singles match 6-1, 7-5 over Catalina Castano before Eugenie Bouchard of Westmount, Que., eased past world No. 144 Mariana Duque-Marino 6-2, 6-2.

The doubles match was canceled due to rainfall.

On Thursday the Canadian team won its three matches against Venezuela after opening the competition Wednesday with a 3-0 decision over Peru.

Canada will play in the final against pool B champion Brazil on Saturday, with the winner advancing to the World Group II playoffs in April.
