MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

WTA Tour – Tuesday, Aug. 8, 2023 final results

Bouchard at the Rogers Cup in Montreal in 2016.

A ton of Canadian content Tuesday – including Bianca Andreescu and Leylah Fernandez on the stadium court with very challenging first rounds.

As well, the all-Canuckian team of Genie Bouchard and Rebecca Marino played doubles, along with the Cana-Cana-Kiwi duo of Gabriela Dabrowski and Erin Routliffe.

And Caroline Wozniacki (who got a MUCH better draw than either Andreescu or Fernandez even though all three played qualifiers – the draw gods have spoken) returned after 2 1/2 years and two kids away. And won easily.
