  1. Just in case you didn’t have time to look, you can add Beran in Slovakia and Volfson in
    Finland to your list of male Canadians in action this week.

    • Thanks. I’m not even going that deep because then I’ll have to keep track.
      I’m a little, um, busy elsewhere 🙂

  2. Pospisil must have done something to get cursed by the French! Earlier this year it was Simon haunting Pospisil….now it’s Monfils again looming in 2nd round if Vasek can get by Baghdatis.
