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 — 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.
I think we can put the recent Pospisil run of form down to the maple syrup he’s been consuming 😊— Ryan (@Ryanroxs01) February 13, 2020
In fact, one fan plans to start chugging maple syrup before their tennis matches.
Wow.— Ben Lewis (@BenLewisSN590) February 12, 2020
Vasek Pospisil earns one of the biggest singles wins of his #ATP career, beating world #5 Daniil Medvedev 6-4, 6-3 to move into the 2nd round in #Rotterdam.
The Canadian hit eight aces, 21 winners, and AGAIN had maple syrup on the changeover.

And another fan is going to incorporate it into their breakfasts.
Snowstorm. Guess I’m staying home from gym and laundry mat to watch Vasek Pospisil at 3. Actually this is a pretty delightful new plan and now I’ve dumped maple syrup all over my oatmeal in tribute to his big win over Medvedev 🍁🇨🇦— Nicole Andrea (@nicoleaube) February 13, 2020
While this fan is ingesting the syrup in a different kind of way.
Imma start injecting maple syrup into my veins if Pospisil keeps this up— Ricky Dimon (@Dimonator) February 13, 2020
utterly ridiculous scoreline today vs. Medvedev pic.twitter.com/e7S1Fa7VL9
And this fan pretty much summed up how every Canadian was feeling in seven words.
Even Pospisil chimed in, confirming that — like every Canadian, ever — 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.
