9 thoughts on “Canucks This Week – Week of May 7, 2018 (Final results)

  1. Thank you so much for the continually updated info on canucks. It is very much appreciated.
    Any news on Wozniak? She seems to have disappeared again.

    • I would expect a retirement announcement soon. She’s getting married, and clearly her shoulder will not allow her to play at the level she can accept.
      That’s the danger with shoulder surgery and tennis, for some reason. Most try to avoid it until there is no other option, and in many cases it just doesn’t work.

      • Thanks for the update! I kind of guessed that just thought she might have one last go at it!
        It seems to be a bit of a transition phase in Canadian women’s tennis at the moment. Do you see any strong future prospects?

        • On the women’s side? Wasteland. Both sides, actually.
          The positive spin on that is that these things are cyclical.

  2. I was taken back a bit by your: “Some tone-deafness on the part of the WTA Tour Twitter account this week, as it promoted Genie Bouchard – and linked to an April photo shoot – the very week the 24-year-old Canadian takes to the ITF circuit at Cagnes-sur-Mer, France.”

    I have criticized Bouchard a lot in my life, mainly for her not training for a more varied game (for she truly has the athleticism to master an all court game, unfortunately not taught to her at American academies), but, just IMHO, as Canadians, perhaps we should give her a bit a slack these days. Canada would not have won the last FedCup without her, IMO, and hers was quite an effort.

    • Exactly.
      While I’d argue her level of athleticism (I’m not sure it’s exceptional), and she did spend ages 14-18 here in Montreal, not down in Florida, it felt like the account was trolling her – and trying to get clicks for photos of her. This week she’s dropping down to the ITF because her ranking is going to fall, big time, and she wasn’t close to even getting into the qualifying in Madrid.
      I mean, that organization incessantly promoted her as the next big thing, far too soon. I feel like she deserved a bit of slack this week.

  3. Funny thing, Bouchard isn’t in the acceptance list at Cagnes-sur-Mer (Zhao is), but perhaps that’s an old list. Her instagram shows Cagnes though:-)

    Rebecca Marino in the Q acceptance list at $25,000 Osprey, to begin May 21st.

    • Nothing odd about it. It’s not an old list. You can see right on these lists the dates of the most recent updates. Bouchard hadn’t made any decisions about where to play and so missed the C-S-M entry deadline. So they gave her a wild card. Wild cards don’t appear on entry lists.

      I see the entry lists as they happen, long before they’re officially posted on the iTF site. So I’m WAY on this stuff, not to worry. You’ll have to trust me. 🙂 (See my earlier response to you about Marino already being entered in those events). That’s why I’ll often put up this post before the draws even come out at the various events.
