Weekend Tennis Diary

Accused domestic abuser Alexander Zverev choked away yet another title, losing nine of the last 10 games after being up a set and 4-3 against Daniil Medvedev in the Paris final, losing 5-7, 6-4, 6-1. It was the Russian first title of the year. "It's great, I'm really happy," Medevedv said. "As I alway say I don't celebrate after the match, but I'm really happy to win matches. Before the tournament I was not in my best form, playing not so bad but zero titles in 2020."

Felix Auger-Aliassime and Hubert Hurkacz saved five championship points on Sunday to capture their first team title at the Rolex Paris Masters. The unseeded pair recovered from the brink of defeat to upset second seeds Mate Pavic and Bruno Soares 6-7(3), 7-6(7), 10-2 in one hour and 52 minutes.

In Challenger land ...

On Sunday, the #NextGenATP American claimed his first professional title at the ATP Challenger Tour event in Eckental, Germany. Korda dominated as the week progressed, dropping just one set at the Challenge Eckental. It all culminated with a 6-4, 6-4 win over Ramkumar Ramanathan in the championship.
