Canucks This Week – Week ending Nov. 14, 2021 (final results)

Félix Auger-Aliassime’s longshot quest to make the ATP Tour Finals ended last week in Paris.

But his season’s not done.

He is still playing Stockholm this notably (notably, instead of the Next Gen Finals).

And he’s joined by countryman Denis Shapovalov. They are the No. 2 and No. 3 seeds.

In Guadalajara, Gabriela Dabrowski qualified for the Tour Finals with partner Luisa Stefani. But because of Stefani’s knee surgery following an injury in the US Open semifinals, they can’t make the date.

Sharon Fichman, whose partner Giuliana Olmos is Mexican, makes the date instead.
