Here is my medal predictions, 3 points = almost certain to medal, 2= some to good chances, 1= low outside chance. If event is not listed, I do not think they will medal.    Archery (1 point)

Tennis update   Looks like we will have 4 men in the singles competition! Raonic, Shapovalov, Auger-Aliassime and Pospisil; Two in the women's singles: Andreescu and Fernandez D

And there was other Pan American boats in the race that they could have given it too as well. Bizarre they just gave it to non Pan American countries.   Here is a link (in French) https://ic

Tennis update

 

Looks like we will have 4 men in the singles competition! Raonic, Shapovalov, Auger-Aliassime and Pospisil;

Two in the women's singles: Andreescu and Fernandez


Doubles Men: Shapovalov/Pospisl will likely team up. Not sure if Auger-Aliassime/Raonic will team up, but that is the only way they can play doubles

Doubles Women: Dabrowski/Fernandez I think is a lock. After my post yesterday, I read that singles rankings can be used to determine entrants into doubles. 

Mixed: Dabrowski and Auger-Aliassime? Their ranking has to be combined highest 16 that have entered to play. 


So overall 7 tennis athletes for Canada. Hoping Raonic/Andreescu actually go.

I feel like Andreescu will likely go unless she has some injury, no clue about Raonic. I really hope Canada can win a tennis medal this time round, its a strong team.

Fernandez/Dabrowski played well at the French Open and almost beat the 2nd seeds. If the men's doubles pair does well I can see them winning a medal. And finally, if Andreescu plays well like she did in 2019, she should medal (but that looks highly doubtful right now).

Plus the Canadian athletes excel on hard court over grass/clay.  They are certainly possibilities. It's certainly bizarre that our last tennis medal was the Gold in 2000.

I actually feel like Dabrowski and whoever in mixed doubles is the best chance for a medal.
