After an incredible night of tennis where he would win a hard fought battle and the latest ATP match ever at 4:55 AM, Sascha Zverev would soon have that history forgotten with aggressive 'acting out' behaviour directed at a chair umpire in a first round doubles match. 

After a what he perceived to be a bad missed call and subsequent loss of the match, the umpire experienced Zverev's expletive laden rant and smashing of the racquet against the umpire's chair, close enough to risk harm. The jury of public opinion is out, and history is likely not to view this behaviour well. It will be perhaps more interesting to see how it impacts what has been a stumbling start to Zverev's 2022 campaign.

The guys a myriad of stories from the week. Felix returns to the finals for a 2nd straight tourney. A new sexy Russian emerges in Saffiulin... and he's got some game too. Alcaraz takes the title in Rio, becoming the youngest ATP 500 winner in the process. Norris and RBA are winners too... and Djokovic returns in Dubai.

Aldwin has his own therapy session on Jelena Ostapenko.
