MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Davis Cup Finals – Tuesday, Sept. 13, 2022 final results

The first day of these preliminary rounds for the Davis Cup finals showed us two things: they’re starting too late, and the courts are WAYYYY too slow.

You wonder if they want to break the players at the end of a long, gruelling season.

In Canada’s case, the ultra-slow court and the extreme humidity in Valencia (indoors) were the worst-case scenario for the team’s one legit Davis Cup veteran, Vasek Pospisil.

Somehow, he came through. Although the win over Korea – by far the weakest of the four teams with Serbia and Spain making up the rest of the pool – was less than convincing.
