Pospisil was over­looked

The Daily Courier - - OPINION -

Dear edi­tor: Re: 10 great­est Okana­gan sports mo­ments, 2000-present (Okana­gan Week­end, April 14).

You for­got one: Davis Cup play­off, 2011, when Vasek Pospisil of Ver­non nearly sin­gle-hand­edly took Canada into the World Group of ten­nis by win­ning both his sin­gles matches — in­clud­ing the de­cid­ing fifth rub­ber — and the dou­bles to lead Canada to a 3-2 win over Is­rael.

Cana­dian ten­nis hasn’t looked back, re­main­ing in the World Group ever since. Vasek also won the Wim­ble­don dou­bles ti­tle in 2015.
