MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Canucks This Week – Week ending May 28, 2023 (final results)

Canadian representation in the Grand Slam qualifying and the top level of juniors is fairly slim at the moment – a long way from where it was, even if there is more at the very top.

On the plus side, Juan Carlos Aguilar won a doubles title at the $15,000 ITF in Mexico.

So only Katherine Sebov and Carol Zhao on the women’s side in Paris this week, and Gabriel Diallo on the men’s side (with Alejandro Tabilo, who represents Chile, added in). None of them were able to get through.

At the longstanding top junior event in Milan, a tuneup for the junior French Open, only Keegan Rice was in the main draw.

Félix Auger-Aliassime took a late wild card into the Lyon tournament, where he made the final a few years ago and also won several Challengers. He was the top seed but pulled out before his quarterfinal match with a shoulder issue.

Denis Shapovalov, who withdrew from Rome, also withdrew from Geneva this week.
