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.

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 Croatia


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

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

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

Javi Pulgar sure cleans up nicely


Ditto for Jaime Pulgar


Not the best season for Grigor Dimitrov of Hubert Hurkacz

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




With whom he likes to share his success


Casper Ruud pumps some iron ... 


So he can fill out his suit like this
