Weekend Tennis Roundup


Top seed Pablo Carreno Busta finished off a great week at the Millennium Estoril Open by taking the title with a 6-2, 7-6(5) victory over third seed Gilles Muller.


I normally wouldn't mention the doubles -- let alone the doubles in three events -- but the Estoril final was a regular jizzfest, with newlywed Ryan Harrison and Michael Venus dominating Spaniards David Marrero and Tommy Robredo, 7-5, 6-2.

How do you say "bottoms" in Spanish? 


Meanwhile in Trumpland -- I mean Erdoganland, Marin Cilic robbed Milos Raonic of his first clay court title, beating the Canadian 7-6(3), 6-3 for the TEB BNP Paribas Istanbul Open title.


And get a load of doubles champions Roman Jebavy and Jiri Vesely, who are 6-foot-3 and 6-6, respectively.


Over in Munich, Alexander Zverev showed his home fans why many think he'll reach the top of the ATP World Tour in the near future. After a slow start, the 20-year-old beat Guido Pella 6-4, 6-3 to capture the BMW Open, winning 10 of the final 13 games. The title is Zverev's second of the season and his third in the past nine months ...


although the fans were the big winners seeing the handsome Argentine in action.


And again, speaking of hot doubles pairings. Colombians Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah -- who is arguably tennis's biggest Instagram showoff -- won their second ATP World Tour doubles title as a team this year, overcoming Frenchmen Jeremy Chardy/Fabrice Martin 6-3, 6-3 on Sunday at the BMW Open by FWU in Munich.
