The era of Waselenchuk dominance continues. The 2014-2015 IRT season marked his historic 10th #1 IRT World Champion title. Waselenchuk's meteoric rise was momentarily thwarted by a two-year suspension between 2006 and 2008, but the Canadian national returned to be the most dominating racquetball player of his generation.
His 2014-2015 IRT season added a new accolade to his impressive resume, with the inaugural pro doubles champion at October's 2014 UnitedHealthcare US Open Racquetball Championships (with Ben Croft), but a return of the inner-ear issues that plagued him earlier in his career forced him to the sidelines until 2015. This loss of IRT points reduced his ranking to #2, and made for an exciting race for #1 by season's end. When he returned he appeared to have never missed a step, winning every event to regain the #1 IRT World Champion title at the last tournament of the season.
With only two non-forfeit matches since the 2008-2009 IRT season, Waselenchuk is making a compelling case for greatest player of all time as well as one of professional sport's most gifted athletes.
His game is as technically skilled as it is creative. Waselenchuk is a master of deception and goes for shots no other professional has even attempted. Extremely focused and hard working, "King Kane" has the killer instinct to never cede an undo point to his opponents. Waselenchuk is one of those rare athletes who have no discernible weaknesses and every imaginable weapon. Having proven that he is the best living player in the world, the only question that remains is: to what new heights will he go?
