  1. But I guess he deserves credit for pulling it out. Maybe it builds some confidence for future tournaments, but he has to step it up better at crunch time

  2. I don’t know how many times I’ve seen Pospisil choke being in a winning position, but it just happened in this tiebreaker again.
    I honestly don’t know if Incan watch a complete meltdown

    • (Watching is optional). It’s worth remembering, always, that there’s another guy on the other side of the net who’s generally pretty good. And he is playing with the freedom of the desperate in those situations. It’s not like VP is the only one who struggles in those situations. Far from it.

  3. A busy Sunday for “Canucks this Week” with 4 finals on the schedule!!!! Exciting times indeed.

  4. Is Gabriela Dabrowski trying out some new doubles partners?? Maybe her and Xu are not playing together next year?

    • She went to Moscow to play singles, and she had a partner planned who ended up playing the other tournament.
      But stay tuned.

        • Yes that makes sense.

          They will probably 100% team up tog6in doubles from now on to prepare for Olympics.

          Because both from Canada.

          Unless Bianca wants to play then maybe she can partner with one of them.

          • Not sure why you assume they will play together.
            Also premature to assume that Fichman will qualify for the Olympics.
            Dabrowski is not going to play with Fichman.
