MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Canucks This Week – Week ending March 3, 2024 (final results)

Canucks

As Indian Wells and Miami near, Denis Shapovalov is back in Dubai, and Félix Auger-Aliassime is back in Acapulco.

There’s Leylah Fernandez in San Diego, and four more Canadian women in the qualifying in San Diego and Austin.

Marina Stakusic, heroine of the BJK Cup-winning team last fall, is finally getting her 2024 season under way, with a wild card in California.

Alexis Galarneau, who got back in action at a Challenger in Tenerife last week and was planning to play another one this week, withdrew.

Also missing this week is Gabriel Diallo, who was on the alternates list in Acapulco but not on the qualifying list. He would have ended up getting in.

And, of course, Bianca Andreescu.
