Toronto Star: “‘Feel this moment,’ Canadian tennis legend advises Eugenie Bouchard”

Carling Bassett-Seguso knows exactly what Eugenie Bouchard is going through — and what she can expect next. Eugenie Bouchard’s magical ride to the Australian Open semifinals has attracted the attention of a Canadian tennis starlet from 30 years ago. “When I heard that, I went, ‘Oh, my God.

Pierre ” The Bear” Lamarche: “Catching up with Brayden Schnur”

Last January I really felt my results did not warrant for me to bypass University. Although I reached a high 21 ITF ranking it became obvious that I still had a lot to learn. My parents as always were instrumental in making my decision which was supported by them and the coaches at the National Centre in Montreal.

Michael Emmett: “25 Predictions for the Upcoming Tennis Season”

1. Rafael Nadal will win his 9th French Open and improve his record to 66-1 at Roland Garros. His only loss came in 2009 to Robin Soderling in the 4th round. 2. Roger Federer will NOT get to the Final of any Grand Slam in 2014. In fact, he will only make it to ONE semi-final in his final year on the ATP tour. 3. Serena Williams will NOT win all four major championships. But she will put a stranglehold on the #1 ranking. Serena will lose some matches but show the world she’s well on her way to the top of the all-time Grand Slam Mountain. 4. Milos Raonic will NOT end the year in the top 8 of the ATP rankings. He will hover in the 10-14 spot for at least one more season. 5. Raonic will, however, make it to his first ever Grand Slam quarter final and lose in four sets to one of the big guns ranked inside the top 5. With movement still a major issue, Milos will struggle to beat a top-5 player in a best-of-five format on an outdoor court.
