Weekend Tennis Roundup

Russian beanpole (and qualifier) Daniil Medvedev fought off tigerish Australian youngster Alex de Minaur to win his first ATP Tour title at the Sydney International on Saturday. Medvedev completed a all-conquering week to fight back from losing the opening set to extinguish de Minaur, 1-6, 6-4, 7-5. It was 21-year-old Medvedev's seventh win this week, giving him solid preparation for the Australian Open starting tomorrow (tonight in the the U.S.) where he faces another Australian Thanasi Kokkinakis in the first round.

So great to see the 2016 model of Angelique Kerber return to the court, winning her first title since her triumphant U.S. Open, beating Ash Barty 6-4, 6-4 to win Sydney. It was the German former No. 1's 11th career title.

Roberto Bautista Agut defeated Juan Martin Del Potro 6-1, 4-6, 7-5 to win his second career Auckland title, and seventh overall. 


Elise Mertens survives Mihaela Buzarnescu, 6-1, 4-6, 6-3 to win her second Hobart title.

Live coverage with Sloane Stephens is on now!
