MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Canucks This Week – Week ending Dec. 4, 2022 (final results)

The Canadian men finally hit their off-season – in triumph, don’t you know, after winning the g.d. DAVIS CUP!!!!

But there STILL remains some tennis to be played.

Because tennis never ends.

It’s insane.

Again this week, most of the Canadian content is centered around a joint $15K in Santo Domingo, DR. And there, Liam Draxl reached the singles final, as did Steven Diez at a Challenger in Spain.

And there was a big J1 junior event in Bradenton at the IMG Academ – The Eddie Herr. But unlike last year, not much in the way of Canadian content in the later rounds.

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