January 4th, 2013 – Day Two @ the World Cup

Evening everyone –

Well, today was another big day. Canada played it’s first team match against Portugal and won (woohoo!), Mario and Sean made it into the top 8 in the doubles championship against the two of the top players (not a bad accomplishment, if I say so myself), and we participated in the opening ceremonies of the tournament where Canada walked out proudly waving our country’s flag!

After watching a few hours of tape on Luxembourg & Belgium the boys are finally asleep. Tomorrow, they’ll finish qualifying by playing Luxembourg at 9:00 am and then Belgium at 11:00 am. Play hard, boys & sleep well.

But before we sign off for the night, here’s a recap of the doubles finals today:
