What the Canadians are up to on the tennis tours this week.
The weekend went better than expected for Françoise Abanda. For Genie Bouchard, not so much.
Two discouraging losses by Genie Bouchard meant Canada relegated to World Group II.
With all the Genie Bouchard drama that was to come, 18-year-old Françoise Abanda’s big win over a player ranked more than 200 spots above her didn’t get the attention it deserved.
First up will be Abanda vs. Begu, followed by Bouchard vs. Dulgheru.
Just like in Quebec City in February, the Canadian Fed Cup team left a spot open for Genie Bouchard for next week’s tie against Romania.
An Abanda gets legal. But it’s not Françoise.
The spotlight is in Miami.
Canada’s first day in Fed Cup’s World Group I played out pretty much as expected.
No Bouchard, no Wozniak. Canadian captain Sylvain Bruneau had some calls to make.
The tennis world shortly returns to its regular grind. And some of the other Canadian players are right back at it.
MELBOURNE, Australia – It wasn’t exactly the best Canadian day at a Grand Slam in recent memory.
