Canadian Levine goes “home” in return

The entry list for the ITF Futures event in Sherbrooke, Quebec has been released.

Joining young Canadian Filip Peliwo, will be Can-American Jesse Levine.

Levine has been out of action for four months, since having non-invasive surgery on a long-troublesome left elbow.

He moved to Florida years ago, not for tennis, but because the climate was reportedly better for a young brother who had a health issue. And he embraced the stars and stripes wholeheartedly despite remaining a diehard fan of the Ottawa Senators.

Levine renewed acquaintance with the maple leaf last year, as an extra hand on the Davis Cup team.

Currently ranked No. 245, Levine likely will be the No. 2 seed. He has played the tournament several times before, but never as a Canadian.

Belgian veteran Olivier Rochus, who is playing a Futures event in France this week for the first time in 14 years (per the ITF), will also be on hand.

The tournament takes place from March 8-16.
