Weekend Tennis Roundup


Call me a fuddy duddy, but sometimes I like when Monday rolls around with the right people winning tournaments -- and that's exactly what happened this weekend. Karen Khachanov breezed past Adrian Mannarino 6-2, 6-2 to win his third career ATP title at the Kremlin Cup on Sunday.


Russia’s Daria Kasatkina defeated qualifier Ons Jabeur of Tunisia, 2-6, 7-6(3), 6-4 to win the women's title in Moscow. 


Kyle Edmund defeated GaĆ«l Monfils to win his first ATP Tour title at the European Open in Antwerp. It is the latest breakthrough moment in a season of them for the 23-year-old Yorkshireman, who reached his first Grand Slam semifinal at the Australian Open in January, became British No 1 and climbed into the world’s top 20.


Anyone know who his hunky "team" member is?


Top-seeded Julia Goerges produced a dominant performance to defeat Belinda Bencic 6-4, 7-5 in the final of the Luxembourg Open Saturday.


Stefanos Tsitsipas became the first Greek player to win an ATP World Tour title when he beat cutie Ernests Gulbis 6-4, 6-4 in the final of the Stockholm Open on Sunday.


Don't usually mention doubles, but did you get a load of the jizz fest in the Sweden final? Hunky Brits Luke Bambridge and Jonny O’Mara claimed their second ATP main tour title, defeating dreamboats Marcus Daniell of New Zealand and Wesley Koolhof of the Netherlands. 7-5, 7-6(8).


Every shot was borderline pornographic!


Jonny knows a "big boy" when he sees one ...


A lot of ass in this friendship ...


Aussie Dennis Novak has Dominic Thiem's frosted-queen look down pat ...


The last time two Russians were in the Top 20? Nov. 8, 2010: Youzhny and Davydenko.


And you probably heard that Wimbledon will introduce a much-needed final-set tiebreak policy next year,. The new format will see a tiebreak played when the score reaches 12-12 in the final set and will apply to all events at the Championships. The move comes after this year's record-breaking semifinal between Kevin Anderson and John Isner required 6 hours, 35 minutes to complete, with the final set finishing 26-24.
