MELBOURNE – It’s a sport involving a ball, but definitely not Milos Raonic’s type of ball.
The Canadian Davis Cup team didn’t need Milos Raonic to get past Chile this weekend in Halifax.
Joao Sousa was game, but he didn’t quite have enough game.
MONTREAL – The top Canadian practices before a full house with Frenchman Jérémy Chardy.
The spotlight is in Miami.
VANCOUVER – Some moments during the Davis Cup draw in Vancouver Thursday.
Pospisil early, Raonic late (just the opposite if you’re scoring at home. 🙂 )
MELBOURNE – After cutting a practice session short Sunday, the big Argentine pulled out of Oz.
There’s no way to sugarcoat this, so we’ll just come right out with it.
Even if the levels drops some after the top four (Kohlschreiber is the No. 5 seed), having Djokovic, Nadal, Berdych and Ferrer on your centre court is a pretty impressive lineup for a Tuesday at an ATP 250 event.
Offering $1.2 million in prize money (among other inducements, surely), does give Doha rather a leg up on your average 250, though.
An award-winning Canuck, and a veteran Frenchman.
Nearly seven years ago already. And so many of the faces are already gone.
