MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Canucks This Week – Week ending Oct. 8, 2023 (final results)

Canucks

Félix Auger-Aliassime was out of Beijing in his opening round, albeit a tough one against No. 3 seed Holger Rune. And then he was out in the first round of Shanghai, in a marathon to Marton Fucsovics.

And Leylah Fernandez and alternate Rebecca Marino also were ousted in their opening matches in the Beijing qualifying.

So that left just Gabriela Dabrowski and Erin Routliffe in the doubles, as the Cana-Kiwi team looked to try to make a big move in the race to Cancun. They, too, were ousted in their opener.

There are solid Canadian contingents at a Challenger in California, and a $15K in Ithaca, NY, on the campus of Cornell University.

Liam Draxl continued his good form with a final in the Ithaca tournament.
