MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Canucks This Week – Week ending Feb. 5, 2023 (final results)

MELBOURNE, Australia – The Australian Open is done, and the Tours resume their regularly-scheduled programming.

Nothing at the ATP level on the men’s side (with the South American clay-court and European indoor swings starting soon, this week is a “Davis Cup” week). But plenty of Challengers.

The women are in Lyon and Hua Hin.

Bianca Andreescu took a wild card into the latter event, and got to the semifinals before retiring after being up in the first set, losing eight straight games and being treated for a shoulder complaint.

In Koblenz, Vasek Pospisil reached the singles final. Good effort from him.
