MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Canucks This Week – Week ending Oct. 2, 2022 (final results)

Denis Shapovalov was back in action this week, not having played Davis Cup or Laver Cup.

And the break seems to have done him some good, as he reached the final in Seoul only to lose to the “super-annoying” Yoshihito Nishioka (his words, said in jest, and very accurate).

Vasek Pospisil was looking for a main-draw spot at the Tel Aviv event, and had a great week. He qualified and gave Novak Djokovic all he could handle as he ultimately bowed out in the quarterfinals.

And Alexis Galarneau was in Charleston for a Challenger – only to have it cancelled early on because of Hurricane Ian.

In Cancun, at a $15K ITF, Louise Kwong won the doubles title.

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