Weekend Tennis Roundup

Madison Keys finally unlocked her potential yesterday in Stanford, winning her first title in the U.S. with a 7-6 (4), 6-4 victory over CoCo Vandeweghe. I love Madison -- she's SO GOOD -- but my patience has been wearing thin of late because of her constant injuries (she's had two wrist surgeries) and her Generalized Lindsay Davenport Syndrome. Here's hoping Keys is able to build on this great week -- she also knocked out Wimbledon champ Garbiñe Muguruza -- because there's no reason she couldn't win the U.S. Open.

Alexander Zverev showed he may be a force to be reckoned with in Queens, winning the crown in Washington, defeating South Africa’s Kevin Anderson 6-4, 6-4. It was the young German's fourth title of the year.

Three-time Washington semifinalist Ekaterina Makarova won the women's crown, coming from behind to defeat Germany's Julia Görges, 3-6, 7-6 (2), 6-0. It seems the Russian is on the right track at reviving her singles career.

Philipp Kohlschreiber defeated Joao Sousa (6-3, 6-4) in Kitzbuhel to claim his ninth title. 

And Wimbledon specialist Sam Querrey broke back into the Top 20 for first time in four years by winning the Abierto Los Cabos crown, defeating Thanasi Kokkinakis in three sets.
