Canucks This Week – Week of March 1, 2021 (final results)

.

There was supposed to be a big Canadian contingent at the ATP 500 in Rotterdam this week.

But both Milos Raonic and Denis Shapovalov withdrew, so it will be left to Félix Auger-Aliassime to carry the flag.

Pospisil earned 240 points on the Montpellier-Rotterdam-Marseille circuit a year ago (including a final in Montpellier). This year, he will try the Doha-Dubai double, even if it’s outdoors. He doesn’t have to defend those points, as they are being rolled over to 2022. This way, he can add to his total by playing different tournaments.

Meanwhile, Genie Bouchard got a late wild card into the main draw in Lyon. She also has one for the WTA 250 in Guadalajara the week after. They will be the 44th and 45th wild cards of her career.

Bouchard has played just two matches since last October – at the Australian Open qualifying in Doha in January.
