MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Canucks This Week – Week ending Nov. 5, 2023 (final results)

Canucks

The Canadian representation in Cancún for the WTA Finals is the on-fire team of Gaby Dabrowski and Erin Routliffe (who is as Canadian as maple syrup but represents New Zealand).

Beyond that, there are a number of Canadians at Challengers around the planet.

And the centre of Canadian tennis this week is in Edmonton, where a $25K reunites the men and the women and features nine in the women’s singles, and 12 in Men’s singles.

Pan American athletes Rebecca Marino (Midland) and Justin Boulais (Edmonton) make a quick transition to summer outdoors on clay to fall indoors on hard. Not easy.
