Weekend Tennis Roundup

This week the men competed in the confusing Davis Cup. And a 17-year-old Czech won her first WTA title while the Wimbledon doubles champ beat the Wimbledon singles champ in the final of a WTA 250 event. (Yikes!) Read my full report BELOW.

In yet another embarrassing moment for the WTA, doubles specialist Katerina Siniakova took out reigning Wimbledon champion Elena Rybakina 6-7(4), 7-6(5), 6-4 to capture the WTA 250 event in Portoroz, Slovenia. Rybakina was up a set and a break but could not put away the reigning Wimbledon doubles champ, who hadn't won a singles title in five years. (Yikes!)

In more hopeful news: Czech teenager Linda Fruhvirtova completed her breakthrough week at the Chennai Open, defeating No.3 seed Magda Linette of Poland 4-6, 6-3, 6-4 in Sunday’s final to lift her first championship trophy. The 17-year-old Fruhvirtova was down 4-1 in the third set before winning the last five games of the match.

The U.S.'s hottest doubles team turns to golf

What do you think of David O'Hare representing Ireland in the Davis Cup in Barbados?

Erin go bragh!

They won -- although in the new Davis Cup format I'm not entirely sure what that means ... Team Canada lost 4-0 to the Netherlands in the qualifying round but have now advanced to the quarterfinals

From HERE.

Team USA

Team Croatia

Sweet to see Borna Coric with former French Open champ Iva Majoli!

Team Germany

Team Zverev 

I think I see why Andy Mies wasn't representing Germany in Davis Cup ... he had his hands full! 

Team Spain

Not nice to say this, but imagine if Pedro Martinez had Carlos Alcaraz's game

Team Italy

Team Netherlands

Dutch treats

Team Canada

The tennis bromance of the century

Team Australia

I guess Novak didn't play for Team Serbia because brother Djordje got married over the weekend

The brothers Djokovic ... of course Nole had to SING

Team Bosnia and Herzegovina; Damir Dzumhur wants you to know that quasi-countryman Novak Djokovic has done a lot more for tennis players than that other guy

Ooh la la: Martin Breysach

Follow the Baylor tennis stud HERE.

Javi Pulgar sure cleans up nicely

Ditto for Jaime Pulgar

Not the best season for Grigor Dimitrov of Hubert Hurkacz 

How cute were they a dozen years ago?!

Cutest sendoff message to Roger Federer ever!

Toni Nadal on Federer

I guess the silly Laver Cup will take on more meaning this year

Jonathan Eysseric and David Pel picked up the Challenger title in Rennes

But the biggest thrill for Jon must have been being lifted off the ground by 6-6 Dutchman

BTW: Pel seems to have a very cute little brother named Stijn 

With whom he likes to share his success

Casper Ruud pumps some iron ... 

So he can fill out his suit like this
