Vasek Pospisil on his love for Montréal

Every time I come back to Montréal, it’s very special. No other city compares to Montréal. People are so passionate about tennis and sports in general that I always have a lot of fun when I come back here.

 

Frank Dancevic on his homecoming

I haven’t played in a big stadium in a little while so it felt great to be out there in front of my home fans. I was surprised by how many people actually showed up for the qualies. It was nice to see.

 

Frank Dancevic on his next opponent, Tim Smyczek of the US

He’s a tough player. We’ve played many times on the Challenger circuit over the past decade so I know his game. He’s a very good player, very fast on the court and counter-puncher. Our styles are a little bit different: I have to serve well to be able to get through to the next round.

 

Denis Shapovalov on the experience he gained at Wimbledon this year

I think that with every big tournament that I play, I gain a little more experience with the courts and the crowds and just the atmosphere. I’ve gotten really confortable playing in these atmospheres. I’m expecting a good match [against Rogerio Dutra Silva] as always and I want to go and have fun out there.
