MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Canucks This Week – Week ending Feb. 27, 2022 (final results)

A lot of the Canadians who populated Cancun last week moved on to Santo Domingo this week.

And, in a surprise, Davis Cup player Steven Diez was the top seed at a $25K ITF in Turkey. The Challengers up for grabs in recent weeks have been on hard courts, and perhaps he wanted to get back to more comfortable surroundings. As the No. 1 seed, he was eliminated in the quarters.

There are no singles players in the WTA Tour events this week (nothing new, these days). But we do include Alejandro Tabilo, who now represents as Chile. So there’s actually one. He made the semis in Santiago.

Denis Shapovalov made the semis in Dubai – losing a three-tiebreak marathon to Jiri Vesely (who had a crazy-good week out of the qualifying).

And Vasek Pospisil reached the final at the Pau Challenger.
