MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Canucks This Week – Week ending Oct. 22, 2023 (final results)

Canucks

Leylah Fernandez continued her run in Asia in Nanchang, after her encouraging triumph last week in Hong Kong.

And Félix Auger-Aliassime wraps up his Asian swing looking for victory in Tokyo. He had a decent draw, and at least won two matches in a row.

But the bulk of the Canadian content came at the $60,000 ITF in Saguenay, where most of the Canadians were in action (with a few exceptions, who are plying their trade elsewhere).

Katherine Sebov was the No. 1 seed there. And she won the tournament without dropping a set.
