Tennis Talk – December 2019

History was made once again for Canadian tennis in 2019, but this time a new bar was set by our men’s team. Canada’s Davis Cup squad fell to Rafael Nadal and the Spanish team in the Davis Cup Final – the furthest our country has gone in the international competition – with a depleted roster.

Vancouver’s own Vasek Pospisil and teammate Denis Shapovalov carried our nation to new heights in a grueling new format, reaching the finals for the first time in history in unprecedented fashion. The two were exhausted. An injury kept Felix Auger-Aliassime and Milos Raonic out of action, so Pospisil and Shapovalov averaged two matches a day to take down the United States, Australia, Russia and Italy all by themselves. What a week!

In other news, Bianca Andreescu added another accomplishment to her own historic year by unanimously winning the 2019 Lou Marsh Trophy as Canada’s athlete of the year. Andreescu is the first tennis player to earn the award, as voted on by a panel of sports journalists from across the country. Congratulations Bianca!

We can’t wait to see what’s in store for Canadian tennis in 2020!

Tennis Talk – November 2019

While the WTA and ATP are winding down an eventful season, there is still plenty of Canadian tennis news on our radar! Bianca Andreescu finished at No. 5 in the world rankings after retiring from the WTA Finals and concluding what was a legendary year for the young Grand Slam champion. Andreescu’s coach, Sylvain Bruneau, is confident the powerful phenom will be healthy and ready to return to action come January.

On the men’s side, Denis Shapovalov had an impressive run at the Paris Masters that ended in a finals loss to Novak Djokovic and he has now equaled his career-high ranking of No. 15 in the ATP. Felix Auger-Aliassime finished at No. 21 as the ATP Finals in London continue among the top eight players.

In Davis Cup action, Milos Raonic withdrew from Team Canada with a back injury prior to the November 18th start date. Vancouver’s Vasek Pospisil will join Brayden Schnur, Shapovalov and Auger-Aliassime as Canada battles Italy and the USA in Group F of the David Cup Finals in Madrid.
