MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Canucks This Week – Week ending Sept. 18, 2022 (final results)

The US Open is done. But tennis never sleeps.

The Canadians (well, some of them – including late addition Félix Auger-Aliassime) head to Valencia, Spain for the preliminary rounds of the Davis Cup Finals.

They meet Korea on Tuesday, and then have to sit around for three days to play Spain and Serbia back to back on Friday and Saturday.

In Chennai, India (a new pop-up event as the third consecutive cancellation of the fall Asian swing kicks in), there are THREE Canadian women.

This is rare.

There’s No. 7 seed Rebecca Marino, Carol Zhao and Genie Bouchard, in a protected ranking.

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