Weekend Tennis Roundup

Titles for Gauff, Evans, Tsitsipas and Baez, plus all the ATP beef that's fit to post BELOW.

This week's top results:

Stefanos Tsitsipas capped a successful week in Los Cabos on Saturday night by defeating Alex de Minaur, 6-3, 6-4, for the ATP 250 title.

Sebastian Baez crashed the Generali Open party of Dominic Thiem in style on Saturday, when the Argentine destroyed the home favorite 6-3, 6-1.

Dan Evans -- who is probably my least favorite player on tour -- won his second ATP Tour title by beating Tallon Griekspoor 7-5, 6-3 in a rain-interrupted DC Open final on Sunday.

No.3 seed Coco Gauff captured her first WTA 500 title by defeating No.4 Maria Sakkrari 6-2, 6-3 in the final of the Mubadala Citi DC Open. The 19-year-old American capped off a resurgent week in the nation's capital, where she did not lose a set to take home her fourth career title and second of the season.

Santiago Gonzalez and Edouard Roger-Vasselin dug deep in sweltering Los Cabos on Saturday to claim the title by defeating Andrew Harris and Dominik Koepfer 6-4, 7-5 to claim their third tour-level crown of 2023. 

Alexander Erler and Lucas Miedler gave a masterclass in handling home pressure Saturday at the Generali Open. The Austrian pair prevailed 6-4, 6-4 against Gonzalo Escobar and Aleksandr Nedovyesov to complete a perfect week at the ATP 250 in Kitzbühel. 

Mexico City-based model/athlete/runner Robert Cárdenas got some new Tommy Hilfiger briefs. (He's wearing blue ones in the teaser up top.

Paula Badosa really gave up this (dressed as a construction worker in the teaser up top)
