Men's update: World No. 2 Rafael Nadal clinched his eighth successive Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters title on Sunday, dismissing top-ranked Novak Djokovic 6-3, 6-1 to end a seven-match final losing streak to the Serb. Defending champions Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan captured their third Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters trophy on Sunday, defeating second seeds Max Mirnyi and Daniel Nestor 6-2, 6-3. The victory marked their 20th ATP World Tour Masters 1000 team title.
Women's update: Italian Sara Errani made a clean sweep in Barcelona by not dropping a set to win the women's singles final and she also went on to win the women's doubles. She defeated Dominika Cibulkova 6-2, 6-2 in the singles and when she teamed up with Roberta Vinci against fellow Italians Flavia Pennetta and Francesca Shiavone they walked away in just 50 minutes with a 6-0, 6-2 victory. Number 2 seed, Angelique Kerber defeated the number 1 seed, Caroline Wozniaki in the final of the e-Boks Open in Copenhagen. She fell behind in both sets, 4-3 in the 1st and 4-1 in the 2nd but managed to raise her game to win the title 6-4, 6-4. In the ladies doubles in Copenhagen, number 3 seeds Kimiko Date-Krumm and Rika Fujiwara defeated Sofia Arvidson and Kaia Kanepi 6-2, 4-6, 10-5. The 41-year-old Date-Krumm won her third WTA doubles title, while it was a bigger occasion for the 30-year-old Fujiwara as it was her first WTA title of any kind. Federation Cup: Serbia recorded a historic 3-2 victory over Russia in the World Group semi-finals at the Sports Palace "Megasport" in Russia. With the score level at 1-1 going into day two, Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic both claimed singles wins to wrap up the tie for the visitors with a 3-1 lead. The result sees Serbia rise to their highest ever Fed Cup ranking of No. 4, although it wasn't enough for them to jump above Russia, who remain at No. 3. The Czech Republic's title defence continued with a comprehensive 4-1 victory over Italy in the Fed Cup who will now face a home tie against Serbia in the Final on 3-4 November. World No. 3 Petra Kvitova was the hero once again as she recorded two singles wins to take her on-going unbeaten run in Fed Cup to 10 matches. Lucie Safarova was also on target for the hosts, who wrapped up proceedings inside three rubbers by taking an unassailable 3-0 lead. The result sees the Czech Republic leap frog Italy into the No. 1 spot in the new Fed Cup rankings. This is the first time the Czechs have reached the top spot, a position the Italians had occupied for the last three years. Looking ahead this week: The ATP tour travels to Bucharest for this 250 event with Giles Simon, Florian Mayer and Viktor Troicki all competing. In Barcelona, Rafael Nadal has his eyes set on winning this 500 event for the seventh time, although he will have tough competition with Andy Murray and David Ferrer. The WTA tour travels to Stuttgart for the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix with the top 8 women in the world all in attendance, while in Morocco, Kuznetsova and others compete in Fes.
