    Most of the time it seems the kids are not that into it, perhaps because they are understandably nervous, but meh, tennis has bigger things to worry about.

    Rafael Nadal and Simona Halep Win Rogers Cup Titles

    US Open Series Continues This Week with Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati

    August 12, 2018 -- The world's No. 1-ranked players each outlasted their challengers in Canada this week, as Rafael Nadal and Simona Halep took home the Rogers Cup singles titles.

    Nadal won his record-extending 33rd ATP Masters 1000 title with a 6-2, 7-6(4), defeat of Stefanos Tsitsipas in Toronto. Nadal's fourth Rogers Cup triumph ended an inspired breakout performance from the young Greek, who turned 20 on Sunday after a week in which he defeated four Top-10 seeds in Dominic Thiem, Novak Djokovic, Alexander Zverev and Kevin Anderson to reach his first ATP Masters 1000 final.

    Halep won a rematch of the French Open championship, defeating American Sloane Stephens, 7-6(6), 3-6, 6-4, in Montreal. It was Halep's second Rogers Cup title in the last three years, while the No. 3-ranked Stephens reached the Rogers Cup final for the first time, after having made the semifinals last year in Toronto to jump-start her summer that culminated with winning the US Open championship.

    The world's best players now converge on Cincinnati, as the US Open Series continues with the Western & Southern Open. A deep women's draw includes two-time Cincinnati champion Serena Williams, Stephens, Madison Keys, CoCo Vandeweghe, Danielle Collins, 16-year old Amanda Anisimova and Bethanie Mattek-Sands. The men's field features 2013 Cincinnati finalist John Isner, Sam Querrey, Steve Johnson, Jack Sock, Frances Tiafoe and Mackenzie McDonald.

    ESPN2 picks up its coverage from Cincinnati on Thursday, beginning at 1 p.m., and will carry matches through Sunday's finals, beginning at 2 p.m. ET. Tennis Channel begins its weeklong coverage with Monday's first round. See the full summer TV schedule here.

    I've noticed this pattern with Rafa for a while now. In many cases, like today, he manages to create new opportunities, but it's what costs him important matches against Roger and Nole
