I should play more tennis. I really like playing tennis and I almost never play. Does anyone want to play this summer?
Speaking of tennis, in July of 2009 I wrote about Canada's male singles tennis failure. Here's a snippet.
Canada's inability to produce a single excellent men's singles tennis player is mind boggling. There have been a few decent female players, and at least a couple of excellent doubles players, but not one male player who could even upset their way into a semi-final match. The highest ranking Canadian male in singles play was Andrew Sznajder who somehow got ranked #46 in September 1989. You're forgiven if you've forgotten about Andrew Sznajder.
Today, Canada's Milos Raonic reached his second straight final in an ATP Tour event. A year ago he was ranked 361, now he'll crack the top 50. That's pretty impressive.
Is Milos Raonic the real deal or simply Andrew Sznajder reincarnate?
