I know it’s crazy to say, but we are about to hit the final surface of the season – hard courts. Players are taking time off and preparing for the next few hard-court swings, especially with Rogers Cup coming up fast. Let’s dive into what happened on social media this week.
16-year-old Canadian Leylah Annie Fernandez continues to soar this year. Coming off the Roland-Garros junior title, the rising star went on to win her first pro singles title in Gatineau last weekend!
Could this be the first of many?
Genie Bouchard continues to train with the hard court season around the corner. It looks like the Canadian is ready to get back to her winning ways… and save lives? #LifeguardGenie
You can’t say you sweat buckets until you’re on Vasek Pospisil’s level… Just saying.
The Canadian Challenger Swing has been full of action this month and we have seen success from many home grown players, one of which is Katherine Sebov. She recently faced off against compatriot Carol Zhao at the Granby National Bank Challenger and couldn’t be happier to see her friend back on the court.
World No. 7 Elina Svitolina has the perfect hitting partner in boyfriend and World No. 19 Gael Monfils. The two displayed their talents with a couple nice winners.

Stan Wawrinka posted what everyone thinks on Monday – no matter if it’s a workout or just simply work.
After Wimbledon comes to an end, players usually take a week or two off before the hard court season. Sloane Stephens and fiancé/TFC striker Jozy Altidore enjoyed sometime in the sun.
Sticking to the vacation theme, the reigning Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic is taking some much needed time off. I don’t know where in Croatia the World No. 1 is, but it’s completely stunning.
The other Wimbledon champion Simona Halep continues to be a rock star since returning to her home country of Romania.
The celebration was capped off with a giant parade for the 27 year old. A pretty big party to say the least!
John Isner is still trying to get back into peak shape coming off a foot injury. The World No. 14 looked great last week, capturing the Hall of Fame Tennis Championship.
