March/April Edition – Letter from the Editor

March 18, 2022

The growing crisis of Ukraine’s destruction and senseless slaughter of its civilians is similar to the US’s foray into Vietnam in the 1960s. It led to a revolution of American society through the upheaval of its population against its government’s leaders and politics.

We can only hope that the Russian people can promote such a process and support the free world. No more War, Ukraine strong.

Our lead story is about Kyrylo Tabunshchyk and his family, part of our Canadian tennis family. Our March edition also features our regular contributors who provide leading-edge insight on beginning a great 2022 ATP and WTA season. We have added as contributing director Dave Miley, the former executive director of the ITF. 

This issue has a Western slant: renowned Canadian tennis writer Tom Tebbutt interviews Grant Connell on the biggest fight of his life. New state-of-the-art facilities in Calgary and Victoria join the best in Canada. The determination and commitment of volunteers show us all that can be accomplished for our great sport.

Enjoy, please join and recruit your friends, as ONcourt is dedicated to recognizing the sport’s past, present, and future in our country. The ezine is privately funded and can only grow through the cooperation of all.
