Who Why They're Up
Rafael Nadal
The clay streak now stands at 72 matches, as Spaniard wins Barcelona hat trick, taking out Guillermo Cañas in the final. We'd like to see the Vegas line on Nadal winning the French again.
Paul-Henri Mathieu
Erratic Frenchman wins first title in five years, taking Casablanca, Morocco, crown.
Gisela Dulko
Argentine scores first WTA title of her career, beating Romania's Sorana-Mihaela Cirstea in the Budapest, Hungary, final.
Donald Young
American teenager won the first pro title of his career the week before last, taking gold at the Little Rock, Ark., future event. En route to the finals, Young beat Harel Levy, once a top-30 player. Nice result, and you have to hope there are more of these on the horizon.
Billie Jean King
As part of a 60th birthday gift, BJK took a cameo role as a judge in last week's Law & Order. (No truth to the rumor that, in exchange, Fred Thompson will be an honorary World TeamTennis mascot this summer.)
Andy Roddick
According to tax filings obtained by The Wall Street Journal, among athletes' charitable foundations, his is the 10th largest. (Andre Agassi's is third behind Tiger Woods' and Lance Armstrong's.)
Doubles winners
Andrei Pavel and Alex Waske beating Nadal and Bartolome Salva-Vidal in Barcelona. The unseeded team of Jordan Kerr and Dave Skoch in Casablanca. Szavay and Uhlirova in Budapest.
Who All Tied Up?
Sam Querrey
Young American dealt an early-round defeat, but good for him showing his face in Barcelona. (And he won his first match at Estoril, Portugal, on Sunday.)
