Vasek was invited early on to the Davis Cup team. At a certain point he got displaced by Milos, but in retrospect, that was probably a fair decision, based on type of game and also mental suitability for playing important matches (Vasek has shown some tendency to falter when he gets close to the finish line).
Tennis Canada has been trying to encourage young players to make a base in Montreal. Milos and Rebecca went along with that, but maybe it didn't suit Vasek. Now it seems like he is at least spending a good bit of time there.
In short, I am suggesting that maybe it is Vasek changing his thinking, more than Tennis Canada.
Anyway, great week for Vasek. Hopefully this will inspire him for a productive tour in Korea.
Yeah, I think you're right. I shouldn't even be commenting on Tennis Canada or the NTC because I don't know fully what's going on. Kinda hard for me to follow Canadian tennis from up here in Norway, even though I do try
I second your last line though! great week for Vasek
Congrats to him for a new career high too! My hope is that he can crack the top 200 this year and top 100 next year, that would be the ultimate progress imo. Anything faster than that is of course great too, but that is my goal for him. It will be interesting to see how fast he's moving up the rankings.
