Weekend Tennis Roundup

Jannik Sinner and Jessica Pegula were surprise winners in Canada. Full report plus all the ATP beef that's fit to post BELOW.

Report from Toronto and Montreal ...

Jannik Sinner broke new ground on Sunday when he captured his first ATP Masters 1000 title in Toronto. The Italian produced a clean-hitting display to earn a 6-4, 6-1 victory against Alex de Minaur in one hour and 30 minutes.

World No.3 Jessica Pegula captured her third career title and second WTA 1000 trophy after defeating No.18 Liudmila Samsonova 6-1, 6-0 in the final in Montreal. Samsonova came into the match having spent nearly 10 hours on court. Earlier in the day, the 24-year-old came from a set down to defeat No.4 Elena Rybakina 1-6, 6-1, 6-2 in their rain-postponed semifinal that left her at an extreme disadvantage.

In men's doubles, Marcelo Arevalo and Jean-Julien Rojer delivered a high-class championship-match display to prevail 6-3, 6-1 against Rajeev Ram and Joe Salisbury and claim their maiden ATP Masters 1000 crown.

Showoff alert

Novak Djokovic returns to play this week in Cincinnati and obviously won't be happy until he's got full-blown Covid

Juan Betancourt isn't dating a tennis player anymore, but he's forever part of the "community" so long as he posts pictures like this

Woof: Ryan Harrison

I guess I was wrong about that haircut -- so we're definitely not getting back together :-(


I'll say

Milos Raonic is big leggy
