trophy watch: cincinnati and toronto

Crystal, crystal, and more crystal for this week’s trophies (and for most of the U.S. Open Series so far)…


Roger Federer defeats James Blake in Cincinnati and goes home with the usual Masters Series paperweight/doorstop.

Stat: At 26 years old, Roger is the fifth youngest player to win 50 career singles titles. (Borg set the record at 23 years, 7 months. Jimmy Connors was 4 months older when he got to fifty. John McEnroe and Ivan Lendl were 25 when they won the 50th singles title. And this woman is still single.)

At the Rogers Cup in Toronto, Justine Henin takes the title in two tight sets over Jelena Jankovic in singles and the doubles team of Katarina Srebotnik and Ai Sugiyama beats Cara Black and Liezel Huber.
