Weekend Tennis Roundup

Pretty much got what I wanted out of the remains of the weekend. I was happy to see sexpot Matteo Berrettini follow up on his Challenger win in Phoenix with a win in Hungary even though I was sad to see Filip Krajinovic be a bridesmaid again. 

This is the hunky Italian's second ATP-level title ...

but the dreamy Croatian qualifier still hasn't captured one yet. You may recall that Filip was a surprise finalist at the 2017 Paris Masters. He's now ranked No. 74 while winner Jack Sock has plummeted to No. 124.

And in the doubles finals -- sponsored by KY lube -- Brits Neal Skupski and Ken Skupski took out New Zealand’s Marcus Daniell and Dutchman Wesley Koolhof 6-3, 6-4 to win the Hungarian Open for their second team title.

In Barcelona Dominic Thiem routed Daniil Medvedev 6-4 ,6-0 to take home the crown. It was only fair given that he'd beaten Rafael Nadal in the semis

Although my boyfriend was upset Nadal lost ...

everyone has to be happy to see Thiem strip down to JUMP IN THE POOL, as is customary!

 Not to be outdone, doubles hunks Robert Farah and Juan Sabastian Cabal followed suit, celebrating their 6-4, 7-6(4) triumph over Jamie Murray and Bruno Soares ... 

Watch HERE.

On the women's side, Petra Kvitova beat Anett Kontaveit 6-3 7-6 (2) to win the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in Stuttgart, Germany. Naomi Osaka continued her post-Australian Open flakefest, pulling out against Kontaveit in the semis. But AO runnerup Kvitova became the first woman to win two titles in 2019 -- and bizarre streak that needed to be broken. 

In other Petra news, Petra Martic beat Marketa Vondrousova 1-6 6-4 6-1 to win the TEB BNP Paribas Istanbul Cup in Istanbul, Turkey

And Zheng Saisai beat Zhang Shuai 6-4 6-1 to win the Kunming Open in Anning, China.


Does anyone know who Johnny Millman's special friend is?

Berretinini should be a gelato flavor
