Tennis Tuesday: ATP News Roundup

Last week on the ATP World Tour was an exciting one for us, with several of our favorite players making the finals!   Here’s our roundup of the tennis news of the week.

This Week’s Tournaments:
Delray Beach, FL, USA
Rio de Janiero, Brazil
Marseille, France

Taylor Fritz Makes First Final
The 18-year-old American made his first ATP World Tour Final in just his 3rd event on tour.  To put that in perspective, it took Roger Federer 21 tour events to reach his first tour final.  We were rooting for Fritz all week and are looking forward to more!  Also, the Memphis Open officially has the coolest trophies on tour.

Dominic Thiem Beats Nadal, Wins Argentina Open
Thiem was impressive in beating Nadal (on clay!) and followed it up with a 3 set win over Nicholas Almagro to win the title.  Too often we’ll see players follow up a big win with a loss in the next round, so we’re glad to see Thiem get the win!
