… you'll ever need

Canucks This Week: week ending Aug. 22, 2021 (final results)

The caravan crosses the border again, from Montreal and Toronto to Cincinnati.

The Western & Southern Open is a tournament similar in scope to the Canadian events – except the top two women, Ashleigh Barty and Naomi Osaka, will be there.

On the men’s side, “Big 3” will all be absent, for the first time since 2001.

And Canadians Denis Shapovalov and Félix Auger-Aliassime (who also will be playing doubles, although not together) will get a fresh start after their disappointing early exits in Toronto.
