MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Canucks This Week – Week ending May 15, 2022 (final results)

From one Masters 1000 straight to another as Shapovalov. Auger-Aliassime, Andreescu and Fernandez head to Rome.

All hope they’ll have better fortune.

And there’s a blockbuster from the get-go as Andreescu takes on Emma Raducanu – a battle of US Open champions born in Canada. 🙂

There are some stalwart ITF factories opening up this week – notably Cancun and Heraklion as a number of players hit the road with the spring weather.

And on the juniors side, the leadup to the Roland Garros juniors gets under way, with two Grade 1s and a Grade A coming up over the next three weeks.

The girls aren’t playing the one this week – they’ll be back at the Grade A in Milan next week.

But Jaden Weekes, the only Tennis Canada junior boy ranked highly enough to get into Paris, is playing his fourth European tourney in a row – the highest-grade one.

He’ll get there straight off a win at a J2 in Prato, Italy this week, where he was the No. 1 seed. It’s his fourth ITF junior title – and the highest-graded one.
