Weekend Tennis Roundup

Stefanos Tsitsipas regained his form in Monte Carlo while the women battled their way into the BJK Cup finals. Full report plus all the ATP beef that's fit to post BELOW.

Stefanos Tsitsipas capped a standout week at the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters on Sunday when he dispatched Casper Ruud 6-1, 6-4 to win his third title in four years in the Principality.

 The win returns the Greek -- and a one-handed backhand -- back into the Top 10 after a brief hiccup. 

And the Belgian duo of Sander GillĂ© and Joran Vliegen took out Marcelo Melo of Brazil and Alexander Zverev, 5–7, 6–3, [10–5], to capture the doubles crown.

In the Billie Jean King Cup, USA, Poland, Great Britain, Romania, Germany, Slovakia, Australia and Japan qualified for November's finals in Seville. Damian and I were actually in Tokyo when Naomi Osaka arrived to represent her homeland, but were unable to attend any of the action.
