Olympics team



Note Raonic determinedly not wearing Canadian Olympic apparel - not sure if he is nervous about his Lacoste contract.

The following nicely illustrates height difference between tennis players and divers:



(divers are Roseline Filion, Meaghan Benfeito and Jenn Abel.)

Yeah I saw that 2nd one on twitter, had to double check to see if they were athletes or little kids, the height of Milos and Vasek definately exxugerates their lack of height

just an embarrassment for dubois/wozniak. They lost 6-2, 6-0 to shvedova/voskoboeva

i guess it was kind of predictable since both wozniak and dubois are absolutely horrid doubles players

Default Re: Canadian Players 2

Said this in one of the player' threads but it deserves repeating, and in the correct thread - this is definitely the golden age of men's tennis for Canada - we will likely have 10 players inside the top 350 at once in the next year - Raonic, Pospisil, Dancevic, Polansky, Chvojka, Diez, Duclos, Bester, Peliwo, and Pokrajac. The previous best was having 7 players, but in an era when tennis wasn't as global, the late 1980s (Connell, Michibata, Laurendeau, Pridham, Wostenholme, Bonneau and Sznajder)

It turns out that Milos and Vasek were in great company in the photo of the divers above, since they all 3 won a medal!

Guys, check out live streaming of the Vancouver Open challenger! Bester is currently playing! Diez and Dancevic already won their matches.

Futures event in Toronto and we will have a few Canadians from qualifying.

Huong/Sanders (two Canadians) - Huong should win, he is ranked 48th in Canada. Sanders is ranked 77th.

Garforth-Bles looking like he will qualify.

Alexander Day (40th in Canada) has a shot to qualify, although probably won't happen.

Robert Rotaru will qualify with a win over Andrew Ochotta

Chance for Edward Nguyen.

Phillip Anderson should again qualify over another Canadian.

I am of course very interested to see the main draws here when they are released tomorrow.

Well, that's a surprise: Peter has taken a wildcard into the Canadian Futures (and is seeded #2). Anderson and Hoang qualified, but unfortunately are drawn against seeds #4 and #1. Hoang also qualified and gets a better draw.

Polansky taking a WC to play in Canada F5.

Rotaru, Anderson and Huong qualified.

Other wildcards to Z. White, D. Chu and most excitingly M. Beran.

Direct entries to Pokrajac, Choi and Krainek.

My Predictions

Rotaru - R1
Choi - R2
Krainek - R2
Anderson - R1
White - R1
Beran - R1
Hoang - R1
Pokrajac - QF
Chu - R1
Polansky - F

Also, I will be very interested to see how Garza does, I played in a tournament where he was the top seed this past weekend so will be interesting.

Not much joy for our Canadian qualifiers, unfortunately. Hoang and Anderson won 1 game each, and Rotaru none. Choi, Pokrajac and Polansky through to round 2.
