MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Canucks This Week – Week ending Aug. 6, 2023 (final results)

The summer season is beginning in earnest on the hard courts, although Denis Shapovalov won’t be a part of the start of it, out in both D.C. and at home at the National Bank Open.

In D.C., Félix Auger-Aliassime, Bianca Andreescu and Leylah Fernandez are among those trying to kickstart things.

And in Montreal, there’s a pre-qualifying tournament going on, with the winner getting a spot in the qualifying for the Omnium Banque Nationale.
