Main draw action at the Houghton Boston Tennis Classic starts on Tuesday in Saskatoon, with Canadians Peter Polansky and Brayden Schnur kicking off play in the singles draw at the $15,000 ITF Pro Circuit Futures event. Polansky, alongside Philip Bester, captured the doubles title at the Granby National Bank Challenger over the weekend, while Schnur had a quarter-final finish at the TO2015 Pan Am Games earlier this month in Toronto.

In an all-Canadian match up, Denis Shapovalov and Harrison Scott will go head-to-head in the first match on Centre Court on Tuesday, followed by American Nicholas S. Hu and No. 4 seed Polansky. No. 8 seed Schnur will face Hunter Nicholas of the United States. Fellow Canadian Kevin Kylar will take on compatriot Dylan Bednarczyk, while Alexander Day will go head-to-head with American Alexios Halebian.

Main draw action in doubles continues on Tuesday. Canadians Conrad Koch and Payton Nicol will finish their first-round match against Mexico’s Victor Haddad and Jabari Stafford of United States after play was halted on Monday. They are down 0-2. Tied at one set-all, Canadians Bednarczyk and Asad Siyyid will finish their match against Americans Nicholas Reyes and Cameron Silverman.

Kylar and his American partner Samuel Beren will face No. 1 seeds Matt Reid and Patrick Davidson in their opening match of the tournament on Tuesday. Canadian Day, alongside American Zack McCourt of United States, will go head-to-head with No. 2 seeds Andre Dome and Finn Tearney. Dome recently captured both the singles and the doubles titles at the $15,0000 Vancouver Futures event that wrapped on Sunday in British Columbia. Shapovalov and his partner Alexander Klintcharov of New Zeland will also kick off their first-round match on Tuesday when they face Americans Robbie C. Bellamy and Nicholas S. Hu.
