Rebecca Marino, Gabriela Dabrowski, Sharon Fichman and 16- year-old Leylah Annie Fernandez round out the Team Canada that will compete against the Czech Republic at the Fed Cup World Group Play-Off next weekend. Marino couldn’t hide her excitement of representing her country for a fourth time.

Unfortunately current World No. 23 Bianca Andreescu is not available to compete at the Fed Cup due to a shoulder injury. She was on hand for the opening screening of Game. Set. Canada., an exciting behind-the-scenes documentary on Canadian tennis, and answered some questions from Sportsnet’s Arash Madani.

Everyone knows that Milos Raonic has cannon of a serve. He currently sits fourth in total aces (341) and first in percentage first serve points won (83.8%) this year. If you need tips to elevate your serve to that level, the Canadian can help!

With the clay season officially underway, ATP players were asked what comes to mind first when they think of the red surface. A couple mentioned personal hygiene….

Of course, when clay is mentioned in tennis, 11-time Roland-Garros champion and undisputed King of Clay Rafael Nadal’s name is the first on everyone’s minds. The 32 year old looks in fine form heading into his favourite swing of the season.

The World No. 3 in the WTA Petra Kvitova is as excited as anyone for the clay season!

Mom-and-daughter time is a must…. Serena Williams and daughter Olympia showed off their Pink Ladies in their latest hangout.
