MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Canucks This Week – Week ending April 23, 2023 (final results)

Félix Auger-Aliassime is still taking a break, but Denis Shapovalov is back at the ATP 500 in Barcelona.

With 16 seeds and a 48-player draw, he ends up seeded with a first-round bye.

The WTA Tour returns, but none of the Canadians are playing singles at Stuttgart (tough to get into, period), and the Antalya tournament was cancelled.

But a number of them, including Genie Bouchard in Portugal and Carol Zhao in Charleston, are playing higher-end ITFs.

And there are also a number of the men playing Challengers.
