Weekend Tennis Roundup

Benoit Paire showed his mature side after suffering a heartbreaking loss in the final of Auckland, heaping praise on rising French star Ugo Humbert, who edged the 30-year-old fellow Frenchman 7-6 (2) 3-6 7-6 (5) to lift his maiden ATP title at the age of 21.

Benoit took a Jacuzzi in his turquoise BJORN BORG BOXERBIREFS to recover.

Andrey Rublev became the first man in 16 years to win back-to-back titles in the opening two weeks of the season on Saturday, beating Lloyd Harris 6-3, 6-0 to capture the Adelaide International title.

World Number One Ash Barty won the Adelaide women's crown, beating Dayana Yastremska of Ukraine 6-2, 7-5 to claim her eighth career title but first on home soil. Barty enters Melbourne as a favorite, looking to end a 42-year drought since an Aussie captured the crown. (Chris O’Neil defeated American Betsy Nagelsen in 1978 to become the first unseeded woman to win a major.)

And rising Kazakh star Elena Rybakina overcame a gulf in experience to beat China's Zhang Shuai 7-6(7) 6-3 in the Hobart International final on Saturday and claim her second WTA title.

Borna Coric's new deal with Asics struck me as a real come down from Nike ...

(Suddenly, his first-round loss in Melbourne seems fitting.)
