MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Canucks This Week – Week ending Dec. 12, 2021 (final results)

You thought the tennis season was over?

LOLOLOL

Not even close.

Even the Challenger season isn’t over as Steven Diez, who played Davis Cup for Canada last week, was back on clay in Portugal in both singles and doubles.

But the winners came from a 15K in Cancun, where Liam Draxl won the singles and got to the doubles final. And Stacey Fung and American partnern Pamela Montez won the doubles.
