Victoria, BC Canada

October 14, 2013

Well here we are in Canada.  Was quite a long trip getting here from Tulsa.  We drove to Oklahoma City, flew to LA, then to San Francisco, then to Victoria.  We are actually staying in a place called Sidney which is quite beautiful.  Our hotel is on the waterfront and right near restaurants.

Sasha was the top seed in Qualifying.  One more spot and he would have been in the main draw, but worked out fine.  He played two qualifying matches and got some wins in and now main draw starts tomorrow.  This is Canadian Thanksgiving, so everyone was having their Turkey, mashed potatoes etc.

We got to practice at the club where the tournament is being played.  Sasha is hitting great.  Very nice place, great gym, huge pools.  Community center type place.  They certainly support that type of thing here.

Here is the draw and order of play for tomorrow:
