    Looks like we have a new golf hero, Du Toit, no, not Charles Dutoit.

    Shapovalov, another 17-year-old Laver successor, knocks off Krygios...wow.

    This weekend marked the memorial of the 1917 Battle of Vimy Ridge, Canada's first battle as a unified army. At the cost of 10,000 casualties and 4,000 dead, the victory vindicated the precision barrage tactics of General Arthur Currie, the only successful general of WWI.

    Canada's greatest tennis player of that era, Robert Powell, was killed in action at Vimy Ridge. Another casualty of that war was New Zealander Anthony Wilding.
