MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Canucks This Week – Week ending March 6, 2022 (final results)

It’s a Davis Cup week on the men’s side. And so that means that top Canadians Félix Auger-Aliasime and Denis Shapovalov, who sent their regrets, weren’t in action.

But plenty of Canadians were. Representatives Brayden Schnur and Steven Diez aren’t exactly coming in with a lot of momentum after their efforts at a Challenger (Schnur) and a $25K ITF (Diez) this past week.

But it’s Davis Cup. So anything can happen.

Meanwhile, the Fernandez sisters look to take over Monterrey, where big sister Leylah managed to defend her title.

And Rebecca Marino took the trophy at a $60K event in Arcadia, Calif.
