- Sania Mirza worked it on the runway back home in India.  

- Report: Mirza has been recommended for the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna, India's highest sporting honor.

- Madison Keys won 15 of the last 16 points to beat Aleksandra Krunic 6-3, 6-0 to move into the second round at the Bank of the West Classic.

- Louisa Chirico, 19, scored her first career WTA main draw win with a 6-3, 6-0 win over Heather Watson. Chirico came into the Citi Open 0-5 in WTA main draw matches.

- From WTA Backspin, a great look back at Brazilian great Maria Bueno.

"Bueno won Wimbledon as a 19-year old in 1959. She became the first non-North-American woman to be crowned champion at both Wimbledon and the U.S. Open in the same year that season. She returned to Brazil as a national heroine, was honored by the nation's president and given a ticker-tape parade on the streets of Sao Paulo, her hometown. She'd go on to win two more Wimbledons and three additional Open titles. She even reached finals at the Australian Open and Roland Garros during her career. In all, she won nearly 80 singles titles as a professional, and even while her very long career barely extended into the Open era, she's STILL the nation's women's title leader (with 3) for the period that began over forty years ago."

- With the success of Eugenie Bouchard, Milos Raonic, and Vasek Pospisil, it's boom times for Canadian tennis.
