MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Canucks This Week – Week ending Dec. 3, 2023 (final results)

Canucks

A week remains before the deadline for the 2024 Australian Open.

And while there aren’t really any Canadians on the bubble for a main draw spot, there still are plenty of them out there competing at the lower-level ITF tournaments.

A few more added since last week, in the qualifying at various places around the planet.

Best result was from Kayla Cross, who reached the final of the doubles at the $25K in Lousada, Portugal. But she and her partner gave their opponents a walkover in the final.
