  1. Happy New Year, Stephanie!

    I want to thank you also for all the great info and updates. It’s much appreciated for those of us who don’t use social media. I get most of my info from Live Score Hunter, but it’s much easier to follow Open Court to find my Canadian players! 🙂

      • Tks. So, when & where will Pospisil start 2020? Happy that Raonic is healthy & is still playing Doha.

        • Auckland I think.
          He gambled that he’d get in without using his protected ranking in the qualifying. Didn’t miss by much but with the lack of playing opportunities because of ATP Cup it was stacked. One withdrawal and he’d have gotten into the main draw with his protected. But good practice partners there, obviously.
          Raonic is in Doha. We don’t know if he’s healthy. Or if he’ll play. We shall see!

          • Tks so much for the info, Stephanie. I was remiss in not thanking you for all the info you supplied for our Canadians in 2019, but please accept them now.

          • My pleasure – even when I’m cranky and sleep-deprived and could be nicer. 😉
            Let’s hope for an exciting 2020.
