MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Canucks This Week – Week ending Nov. 13, 2022 (final results)

The regular seasons are over for the ATP and WTA Tour.

Which doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of Canadians in action this week.

We’ll start with the Canadian Billie Jean King Cup team – a team that was given a good chance to make a big run, but was stopped in the group stages.

There was a Challenger in Calgary that Vasek Pospisil was headlining. He was shocked by a qualifier in the quarters, but Gabriel Diallo made it to the semifinals.

And Kayla Cross and Marina Stakusic made the doubles final.

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