Canadian Hopefuls

The three young Canadians with ages ranging from 22 to 19 years old are already stars in the tennis world, but they’re looking to take that next step in their careers and really solidify themselves as superstars by winning a major championship.  All three players took another step towards the ultimate prize last year with Dennis Shapovalov making his first Grand Slam semi-final at Wimbledon, Auger-Aliassime advancing to his first semi-final at the US Open, and Fernandez losing in a close battle in the US Open Finals.
