Last weekend saw Canadian tennis take another massive step. Led by Denis Shapovalov and Vasek Pospisil, Team Canada made their first Davis Cup final ever. Unfortunately the story did not end with a Cinderella ending but it doesn’t take away from the impact the moment will have done the road.
After an impressive run by Team Canada that ended in a finals lost to Spain, the players went to social media to reflect on the outstanding journey.

Boys, what can I say… We sent it! Not the final result we wanted but none the less we left our hearts out there on the court day in and day out. We’ve taken this country to places it’s never been before, beating some amazing tennis nations, and this is only the beginning. Can’t imagine a better way to end the season than with the boys in Madrid. I bet they see us smiling 😁. We will be back 🇨🇦💪🏼

With the tennis season officially done it means award season has begun. At only 18-years-old, Félix Auger-Aliassime put together an impressive year and the tour noticed it nominating him for two awards!
Bianca Andreescu was also nominated for a pair of awards.

I have a feeling Rafael Nadal really wants this award… The problem is the ATP Finals champion Stefanos Tsitsipas doesn’t believe he will.
Can I win it this year? 😉🙏 pic.twitter.com/0jBe0aBg8v
