MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Canucks This Week – Week ending Oct. 15, 2023 (final results)

Canucks

The women’s side this week had Leylah Fernandez at the WTA 250 in Hong Kong, while Gabriela Dabrowski and Erin Routliffe tried to snatch a spot in the WTA Finals by having a big run at the WTA 500 in Zhengzhou.

Mission accomplished for both.

And in Bratislava at a Challenger, Montrealer Gabriel Diallo capped off a great week indoors with the title – by far the biggest of his career, with the Slovak Open offering three times the prize money of Granby, which he won in 2022.

Great Canuckian week, eh?
