Denis Shapovalov stuns Rafael Nadal

Have to admit, this youngster is one we'll be seeing a lot more of. He played all the big points with confidence.

A Computer Nerd and a Tennis Nerd

Great piece here on Canadian player, Peter Polansky.

He might even do bigger things after tennis.

Man Builds Huge Snowman in Canada

It's hard trying to figure out what to do with all that snow in Canada.  How about build a 18-foot tall snowman?

That is what one Ontario man did.

"I made an 11-foot snowman a few years ago. It was either go big or go home," said Bob Mann of London, Ontario.

However, to create a snowman on such a large scale took a bit of "cheating", claims Mann, which came in the form of plywood boxes for each layer and filling them with snow.

The boxes made it easier to climb and lift the snow up, with the help of scaffolding and ladders.

The snow used was found around Mann's house, outside his neighbours' houses and a bank across the road.

Mann added: "If it lasts two weeks, I'm happy."

Breaking: I Asked Jesse Levine One Year Ago to the Date - if He Would Play For Canada

I feel for Jesse Levine, he's in a tough place.

He is ranked around #100 in the world, and that makes him the second-highest ranked Canadian, and they need him for Davis Cup play with Milos Raonoc.  He stands no chance of ever playing Davis Cup for the U.S.

He has been wth USTA Player Development for years, and it was announced today that starting with the Australian Open he will play for the country he was born in, Canada.

Even though he has lived in Florida since he was 13, and played for USA.

Fitting this news comes out today, since one-year ago to the day, I asked if what he would do if Tennis Canada called.

He was coy and diplomatic.

Have a listen and post what you think.
