American tennis player Jesse Levine petitions to represent Canada
104th-ranked player was born in Ottawa
It looks like Canada's tennis ranks are getting some reinforcements.
A Tennis Canada spokesman has confirmed that Jesse Levine is applying to tennis authorities to represent Canada rather than the U.S.
The 25-year-old Levine, currently ranked 104th in the world, was born in Ottawa but moved to the U.S. when he was 13.
The ATP lists his residence as Boca Raton, Fla.
