MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Canucks This Week – Week ending July 14, 2024 (Friday results)

The focus of Canadian tennis was at Wimbledon last week. But when the calendar turns to this week, everyone has been eliminated from singles.

There’s still hope in the women’s doubles, and in the mixed.

The other centre of Canadian tennis this week is a Challenger in Winnipeg, one of two in a row that will allow the Canuckians to try to earn some points at home.

It won’t be as loaded as last week’s $25K in Laval, simply because the rankings cutoff is higher. None of the Canadians made it through the first round of qualifying.

But Vasek Pospisil returns, as a wild card.

Overall, the roster is longer than it was last week, with a number of additional players competing all over the planet.

Here are last week’s results:
