MORE TENNIS THAN YOU EVER NEEDED

Canucks This Week – Week ending July 24, 2022 (final results)

You’d be hard-pressed to find any North Americans on the WTA or ATP circuits this week.

That’s because the tours have gone back to clay as the only option. And with the big North American hard-court swing coming up, it’s the ideal opportunity to take a little breather and a vacay before gearing up for another six-plus weeks of grinding in the summer heat.

Nevertheless, there are plenty of Canadians in action – including Vasek Pospisil, but in Spain and not in the U.S.

And in Saskatoon, it’s exciting that there’s an actual event in Canada, to help with development. And the long list of Canadian women confirms that.

(Last week’s final results at the bottom of the post).
