MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Canucks This Week – Week ending Jan. 30, 2022 (final results)

The main event is in Australia – and a few Canadians have survived into the second week.

The rest of the tennis planet is slowly waking up to the fact that it’s 2022.

But Vasek Pospisil took a Challenger title in France. And Stacey Fung won the singles at an ITF in Cancun.

So it’s a good start.
