  1. Way to go girls! I didn’t see Bianca’s Sunday win, but caught the end of the doubles. What a terrific result for the young Canadian team.

  2. Abanda played like the last 18 months never happened. Did not see that coming.

    • Those who ignore history are doomed to … forget it? Her efforts of this kind in Fed Cup are regular. And often at Rogers Cup. It’s the other weeks of the season that are more of a struggle.

      • I am so ticked at Sportsnet. They showed all the Davis Cup matches last week on their regular network, but relegated Fed Cup to streaming only. I am not a morning person, & with both competitions being played in Europe, they were on in the early hours of the morning in North America. I was able to record Davis Cup & watch it later, but could not for Fed Cup due to it not being on network TV.

        Very happy to see that our women played so well on clay. Congratulations to all of them & to Heidi for her first Fed Cup victory.

        • This is nothing new. Happens every year – even when they’re playing at home. And notice they actually sent a guy to Slovakia for the men.

          • Yes, & how hard could it have been to have Arash Madani go from Slovakia to the Netherlands? He could have had a few days off after Davis Cup before covering Fed Cup. Guess Sportsnet needs a woman in charge of programming!

          • Well, it’s another week-10 days on the road, which is expensive. To assume it would be different with a woman making the calls is to assume she can find more money in a budget where there wasn’t any.

  3. Hi. Who taught Shapovalov his one-handed-backhand? Was it Tessa, his mother? About what age? He seems to have been coached by Fuorivia only from 13 on. Thanks.
