Next Gen continues to do well in non-slam events. In addition to Zverev beating Fed, Tsitsipas defeated Djokovic

Also, Coco Gauff got at top 10 win today over Kiki Bertens. Coco will make her debut in the WTA top 100 rankings on Monday. Not bad for a 15 year old

Ship it.

American teenager Coco Gauff won her first WTA tour title by beating Jelena Ostapenko 6-3, 1-6, 6-2 on Sunday to lift the Linz Open trophy.

Gauff, 15, who reached the fourth round at Wimbledon and third round at the US Open, bounced back after losing a one-sided second set to win the decider comfortably.

The American had earlier called Linz "my little lucky place" and its charm held for the teenager through the final despite a late wobble; after racing to a 5-0 lead in the third set, Gauff dropped two games to Ostapenko before closing out the match.

Gauff entered the tournament as a lucky loser, replacing injured sixth seed Maria Sakkari, having initially failed to make the main draw after suffering a straight-sets defeat to Germany's Tamara Korpatsch in qualifying.

Her second-round win against Kateryna Kozlova earlier in the week secured her a place in the top 100 of the women's rankings and a first WTA tour quarterfinal, from which the teenager emerged victorious after seeing off top seed and world No. 8 Kiki Bertens in straight sets.

Gauff's first tour semifinal led to her first final thanks to a win over Andrea Petkovic of Germany, again in straight sets.

Kiki beat Barty in a 3rd set breaker to give France the 2:1 Fed Cup lead. Garcia v. Tomljanovic is scheduled next, but either could be replaced after getting murdered yesterday. Live on TC now.

It's a shame the tournament doesn't have any evening matches. I was thinking about going tomorrow after work, it seems like play ends around 7pm. By the time I get there after work I won't get to watch much tennis

DOWN GOES DJOKOVIC!!! Federer moves on to the semifinals, and Novak will no longer be No. 1 after the tournament.
