May/June Edition – Letter from the Editor

May 27, 2022

You must read Craig O’Shannessy’s three articles on the ATP’s heir apparent Carlos Alcaraz, who just turned 19 at the beginning of May and who is coached by former #1 and French Open Champion, Juan Carlos Ferraro.

You will find some interesting information on Canadian contributors to our tennis infrastructure who mostly go unnoticed but are an integral part of our success:

We have many other regular contributors who provide insight which ads to your knowledge of the game. Finally you should read about the new concept to recruit more families to our sport: The All Canadian Soccer-Tennis-Wellness Camps who will be offered for the first time in Newfoundland, Ontario and BC.

See you after the French and Wimbledon, it should be a great two months.
