THE ONLY TENNIS SITE

… you'll ever need

Canucks This Week – Week ending Oct. 10, 2021 (final results)

The tennis world is gathering in tennis paradise over the next two weeks – but not in its usual March time slot.

The BNP Paribas Open, the first tournament to be cancelled back in March 2020, and not held a year later, has pivoted to fill in the gap caused by the cancellation of the Asian swing for the second straight season.

Milos Raonic is still out. But Denis Shapovalov and Félix Auger-Aliassime on the men’s side, and Bianca Andreescu (the 2019 defending champion) and Leylah Fernandez on the women’s side, are all seeded and will have first-round byes.

But beyond that, we’ve counted … 37 players in action around the world this week. Most of them at the very entry levels. But still.

And Françoise Abanda is back, ahead of her nomination to the Canadian squad that will play in the BJK Cup finals in Prague next month.
