Vasek Pospisil in good spirits as he aims for strong end to year

Canadian tennis player Vasek Pospisil, 29, says he is entering the last tournaments of the year confident as he is aiming to collect more notable results after winning it all at the Las Vegas Challenger. Pospisil, a former world No.

25, overcame Australia's James Duckworth in the Las Vegas final 7-5 6-7 (11) 6-3 to lift his first Challenger title in nearly two years. A week earlier, the 29-year-old Canadian made the Shanghai Masters round-of-16 as a qualifier, before losing in two tight sets to eventual champion Daniil Medvedev.

"I still I have a lot of work to do. Tennis is all about ups and downs like anything else in life. For the moment I'm enjoying the wave I'm on and we'll see where it takes me," Pospisil told the ATP Challenger Tour after winning the Las Vegas title.

It has been a tough and mentally challenging year for Pospisil, who underwent a surgery to repair his herniated disc in January and missed the first six months of the season.
