Roger Federer's the biggest gainer but here are the weekend winners...

A slightly late update but here's the list of the weekend winners.

It's a pity that German Open Hamburg, an ATP 500 event, has lost its crowd and sponsors due to the non-participation of top tennis players and well, bad timing.

But it's certainly not bad timing for Nikolay Davydenko who won his first title of the year, beating Paul-Henri Mathieu 6-4, 6-2 in the German Open final.

The second-seeded Davydenko captured the 15th title of his career and became the first Russian to win the clay-court tournament.

Mathieu, the 13th-seeded Frenchman, was playing his first final of the year.

In Indianapolis, Robby Ginepri, ranked no. 95 in the ATP rankings, won his third career singles title on Sunday by upsetting no. 3 seed and fellow American Sam Querrey, 6-2, 6-4, in the final of the Indianapolis Tennis Championships.

Dinara Safina thinks she needs more confident boost.

She gets what she wants by winning her 12th WTA tournament on Sunday, rallying to beat defending champion Sara Errani 6-7 (5), 6-1, 7-5 at the Slovenia Open.


Earlier, Andrea Petkovic bagged her first WTA Tour title, beating Ioana Raluca Olaru 6-2, 6-3 at the Nuernberger Gastein Ladies in Austria.
