Weekend Tennis Roundup

Titles for Fils, Svitolina, Jarry and Bronzetti. Plus all the ATP beef that's fit to post BELOW.

Unseeded Nicolás Jarry raced past Grigor Dimitrov to win the Geneva Open final 7-6 (1), 6-1 on Saturday and is poised to rise to his best ranking in a career that was stalled by a doping case.

Jarry is now set to rise above the career-high No. 38-ranking he reached in 2019 before a failed doping test interrupted his career. He completed serving an 11-month ban in 2020 that was imposed after he tested positive for two banned substances, including an anabolic steroid, at the Davis Cup finals. The International Tennis Federation accepted that Jarry was not at significant fault for ingesting a tainted vitamin supplement made in Brazil.

Arthur Fils captured his first tour-level title on Saturday at the Lyon Open, where he defeated Francisco Cerundolo 6-3, 7-5 to become the youngest champion in tournament history. With the win, the sexy 18-year-old Frenchie jumps No. 63 in the rankings.

Elina Svitolina won her first WTA title in nearly two years -- and her first since becoming a mother -- by beating Anna Blinkova 6-2, 6-3 in the final at the Strasbourg Open on Saturday.

Italian Lucia Bronzetti won the Morocco Open by edging out Austrian Julia Grabher 6-4, 5-7, 7-5 on Saturday. The Italian came from 3-1 down in the final set to win the title. 

Jamie Murray and Michael Venus clinched their third tour-level trophy of the season together Saturday when they triumphed at the Geneva Open. In a tight final, the fourth seeds clawed past third seeds Marcel Granollers and Horacio Zeballos 7-6(6), 7-6(3).

Rajeev Ram and Joe Salisbury delivered a dominant championship-match performance Saturday at the Lyon Open, where the American-British pairing downed Nicolas Mahut and Matwe Middelkoop 6-0, 6-3 at the clay-court ATP 250.
