The final leg of the tennis season is well under way in Asia. Some Canadians are already making noise, while one is making her highly anticipated return to action TONIGHT.
Here’s the latest from the world of tennis social media this week:
We’ll start with the big news: Bianca Andreescu will make her return to the court for the first since her US Open triumph!
🙌 if you can’t wait for her China Open campaign to start.
Denis Shapovalov had an excellent week in Chengdu, reaching the semis before falling to Pablo Carreño Busta.
Team World – with Canadians Milos Raonic and Shapovalov – came very close from capturing the Laver Cup last weekend. Either way, the event was a huge success.
No better work out buddy for Féix Auger-Aliassime than US Open semi-finalist Grigor Dimitrov.
Which Harry Potter house do you think Naomi Osaka would be in?
So, Alex de Minaur is adorable. That’s all we gotta say about that.
In his home country, Roger Federer and Team Europe came away with the third-straight Laver Cup. It was an amazing experience for him and all the fans in Geneva.

It was a dream of mine to play the Laver Cup in Switzerland. The fans, the city, and the atmosphere was electric. It’s moments like these that continue to make the game so enjoyable for me. It was a magical moment in my career. 🙌🇪🇺🏆🇨🇭 @domithiem @rafaelnadal @stefanostsitsipas98 @fabiofogna @alexzverev123 @robertobautistaagut Shoutout to Team World and looking forward to Boston 2020!#lavercup
Sports is a perfect outlet for kids. Elina Svitolina knows this first hand.
Stan Wawrinka’s social media game is truly on point.
Happy 28th birthday, Simona Halep!
I hope someone did this for Nick Kyrgios. 😂
