MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Ferrer a dad as (another) Leo arrives

David Ferrer has played the Madrid Open 16 straight years.

That streak ends next week, but for a very good reason.

Ferrer’s awaited bundle of joy arrived Friday, as wife Marta gave birth to a son.

The name? Leo. 

That’s the third tennis baby named Leo in recent years.

As it happens, baby Leo Azarenka-McKeague is in Madrid with his mom.

Feels like a Leo Ferrer/Leo Azarenka-McKeague wild card into the men’s doubles would be about right, 20 years or so down the road – to face grizzled veterans Leo and Lenny Federer in the first round.
