MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Canucks This Week – Week ending Dec. 11, 2022 (final results)

The regular ATP Tour is done (and the exhibition season is beginning)

And last week, the Challenger season ended.

There are WTA 125s in France the next couple of weeks. The draws are very good – but there isn’t a Canadian to be found there.

But STILL, there are Canadians out on the road.

A few are scattered across small ITFs, with Mia Kupres winning the doubles at a $15K level in Austria.

But most of the Canadians are in Plantation, Fla., for the Orange Bowl.

As with the Eddie Herr last week, there aren’t a lot of notables – at least, no seeded players in the 18s.

But on the girls’ side, notably, there have been plenty of champions in the 16s (including Bianca Andreescu and Erin Routliffe, now representing New Zealand).

So we’ll keep an eye on that event as well.

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