Weekend Tennis Roundup


Dominic Thiem took home the title in Rio, defeating Pablo Carreno Busta 7-5, 6-4 in one hour and 34 minutes at the Jockey Club Brasileiro.


Que RICO!


No. 4 ranked Milos Raonic pulled out of Sunday's Delray Beach Open final in Florida, handing Jack Sock the title. (I'm guessing the American celebrated at the closest Chipotle.)


Elina Svitolina trounced Caroline Wozniacki to win Dubai. (If only the prize had been Crimea.)


Jo-Wilfried Tsonga dismissed countryman Lucas Pouille 6-4, 6-4 to capture the title in Marseille.


After playing each other in the final,  Tsonga and Pouille headed to the Velodrome for Ligue 1 game between Marseille and Paris SG. (So Serena and Caroline!)


And last but not least: Timea Babos claimed her second career title (after Monterrey 2012), this time in front of her home crowd in Budapest coming from behind to defeat Lucie Safarova 6-7 (4), 6-4, 6-3. Also on hand was Monica Seles, who paid a visit to the Hungarian Ladies Open in Budapest to reconnect with her roots and inspire the next generation of Hungarian tennis stars. Read HERE.


Monica gave private eating-disorder lessons to the girls.
