Weekend Tennis Roundup


The Battle of the Brits went a long way to undo the damage the Adria Tour inflicted on the game, with proper precautions taken in this London-based event, even if it was played indoors. Dan Evans was the unlikely singles winner while Jamie Murray and Neal Skupski were crowned doubles champs. 


Evans made quick work of Kyle Edmunds, 6-3, 6-2, who had looked quite fit all week, especially during his win over Andy Murray. 


Citing sore shins, Andy opted out of the third-place match, allowing hunky James Ward to substitute for him against Cameron Norrie. Despite coaching from the former No. 1, Ward fell 6-3, 7-5.


 When I met Damian, he was a true Anglophile and I thought British men were universally unattractive. 


But six years into our relationship he now finds their accents as annoying as I do -- and I've now opened my eyes to the post-gym generation of Brits, such as the coach/player duo of Liam Broady and Lloyd Glasspool. Lots more pasty eye candy HERE.


Manspreading with Matteo


Dominic Thiem topped Berrettini to take a Top 4 spot at the Ultimate Tennis Showdown in Nice, even though I've always fantasized about it being the other way around 


Nice to see the likes of Madison Keys, Sloane Stephens and Sofia Kenin in action this weekend in Charleston, S.C. Congratulations to Team Peace for taking home the Credit One Bank Invitational crown!

At school everyone knew me too well. I didn't want to risk someone else forcing me to hold a mirror up to myself. When it came to playing competitions though, well, let's just say weekend tennis became the arena for some serious dummy spits.
