MORE TENNIS THAN YOU EVER NEEDED

MONTREAL – Finally, the biggest week in Canadian tennis is here.

The National Bank Open in Toronto hosts the women, and the Omnium Banque Nationale in Montreal hosts the men.

Most of the familiar faces, and some young up-and-comers, are taking part.

And as Milos Raonic, Genie Bouchard, Peter Polansky and Françoise Abanda are MIA, it really is a changing of the guard.

The highlights were a doubles title for Justin Boulais at a $25K ITF in Ohio, and a singles final for Filip Peliwo at a $15K in Helsinki, Finland.

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