Canucks This Week – Week ending June 6, 2021 (final results)

The second major of the season begins Sunday, with a reduced crop of Canadians after the withdrawals of Vasek Pospisil and Denis Shapovalov.

Milos Raonic is an unknown, because he hasn’t played since Miami.

Bianca Andreescu withdrew from her tournament last week in Strasbourg, and so only had two clay-court matches against low-ranked qualifiers as prep for the big event.

By the end of the first round of singles, only Leylah Fernandez remained.

By the end of Wednesday, all were gone.
