MORE TENNIS THAN YOU EVER NEEDED

ATP Indian Wells – Saturday, Oct. 9, 2021 final results

The All-Canadian matchup between Denis Shapovalov and Vasek Pospisil didn’t even last four games.

Pospisil’s back appears to have gone out on him (or perhaps he even felt it before the match, as he had five double faults in less than two service games before it became visible).

And the older Canadian had to retire at 3-0 in the first set.
