MORE TENNIS THAN YOU EVER NEEDED

Canucks This Week – Week ending Jan. 29, 2023 (final results)

MELBOURNE, Australia – The Canadian survivors into the second week of the Australian Open were few.

Félix Auger-Aliassime made it the fourth round of the men’s singles before being disappointed, and Gabriela is into the third round of the women’s doubles (and still alive).

But as those players were eliminated, others moved on to other, smaller events around the planet this week.

Ben Sigouin, after a few finals in recent months, wins the doubles at the $15K in Edmond, Oklahoma.

Here are last week’s final results; we’ll include Aus Open results only for those who made it to “this week”, and add in the junior results.
