MORE TENNIS THAN YOU EVER NEEDED

Canucks This Week – Week ending Sept. 25, 2022 (final results)

Two doubles titles this week – including a bit win at the Tokyo 500 by Gabriela Dabrowski and her partner Giuliana Olmos.

That puts them atop the WTA doubles race to Texas. And it’s the second consecutive title for Dabrowski, who won with Luisa Stefani in Chennai last week.

As well, newly-minted Canadian Juan Carlos Aguilar wins in doubles at the $15K ITF in Lubbock, Texas. With Can-American Carston Branstine in the women’s singles final.
