What does the future hold for Canadian tennis?
Mon, August 17, 2009

By BILL LANKHOF, SUN MEDIA

It is slightly more than a decade ago that Medhat El Tabakh left Egypt in search of a brighter future for his family.

His daughter Heidi got a taste of that future when she won a spot in the main draw of the Rogers Cup tennis tournament at York University's Rexall Centre.

Still just 22, Heidi has moved up in the world rankings this year, from No. 347 to No. 195, giving Canada six players ranked in the top 200 for the first time.

No. 39 Aleksandra Wozniak, No. 104 Stephanie Dubois, and No. 162 Valerie Tetreault are half of the six Canadians ranked within the top 200. That, coupled with the recent improved performances on the men's side by Frank Dancevic, Peter Polansky and Milos Raonic has Canadian tennis harkening back to its golden age in the 1970s.

Is tennis on the rebound in Canada? Will a Canadian ever compete for a Grand Slam title in the near future? Have your say in our forum.

Future bright for Canuck tennis

Rogers tried very hard to ram tennis down our throats this past week but, quite frankly, I'd rather watch re-runs of Marlies AHL games.

And that's saying something because, if there is a more boring sport on television (maybe darts) I'd sure like to know what it is!
