 🎾Tennis: After entering the event as substitutes when another duo pulled out, Canadian Sharon Fichman won the women’s doubles Italian Open title yesterday with her doubles partner Giuliana Olmos of Mexico. Molto bene! 

🏀Basketball: Back to the Basketball HOF, so we can wax poetic about Chris Bosh. The two-time NBA champ and 11-time All-Star is a Toronto Raptors legend after being drafted to the 6ix in 2003. And even though he took his talents to South Beach in 2010, he still has a special place in Raps fans hearts. 

  • On the court, he set and still holds a ton of franchise records, and off the court, he set up his own foundation in TO and his hometown of Dallas to help youth with athletics and academics. Something special.

⚽️NWSL: And while we’re talking GOATs, let’s revisit that stellar Portland Thorns win last night. Before it became wildly one-sided, Canadian legend Christine Sinclair scored the second goal of the game...and 50th NWSL goal of her career. 

  • With that, she’s now tied at second for all-time goals in the league with North Carolina Courage’s Lynn Williams, and trails Sam Kerr by 17 goals. If anyone can top that, it’s Sincy.
