On Tour
Who's got the funk...
Nicolas MAHUT
Forced to qualify at the Topshelf Open in the Netherlands, Mahut works his yearly grass magic to take the title. Is he really 6-foot-3 or is that media guide fluffing?
Rafael NADAL
It was a struggle during the week but the Spaniard rebounds from his early French Open exit with the grass title at Stuttgart.
The Italian with the crazy gypsy dad wins her first title in her 4th try in the Netherlands.
Back in Halle or as it's know 'The Roger Federer Easy-Bake Draw' attempting an 8th career title.
Queens Club
Huge field with Andy, Stan, Rafa and more makes for a good week. Can the Stanimal make the transition to the lawns?
...Who's in the trunk
Melanie OUDIN

New book says Fed and Djoker don't like each other, and now living in Wimbledon saying he loves the English and the Germans -- not so much. Boris on a roll.
Aussie Men

Juan Martin DEL POTRO
Will he ever be back?
WTA Players on Grass
