Canadian tennis player Vasek Pospisil keeps drinking maple syrup and keeps winning

Canadian tennis player Vasek Pospisil broke the Internet by drinking maple syrup during a match β€” and now, Canadians are attributing his latest win to the sugary drink.

On Wednesday, the Vernon-born tennis star beat the world No. 5 player Daniil Medvedev in the first round of the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament.

Considering that Pospisil is currently ranked 104th in the world, the win was an incredible feat, and fans were quick to credit an unexpected source: Pospisil's love of maple syrup.

In fact, one fan plans to start chugging maple syrup before their tennis matches.

And another fan is going to incorporate it into their breakfasts.

While this fan is ingesting the syrup in a different kind of way.

And this fan pretty much summed up how every Canadian was feeling in seven words.

Even Pospisil chimed in, confirming that β€” like every Canadian, ever β€” he's a "huge maple syrup guy."

Not only does maple syrup contain 24 antioxidants, but the high sugar content results in a quick energy burst, making it a good alterative to energy gels.

Pospisil might just be on to something.
