With all eyes on tomorrow's First Round play in "La Ville Lumiere" usually translated into English as the "City of Lights" let's not forget the players who won this weeks tournaments.

The ARAG Team Championship was won by Serbia. From left, Nenad Zimonjic, Janko Tipsarevic, Viktor Troicki and Arsenije Zlatanovic.

Aravane Rezai of France won her first WTA title at Strasbourg, France

Guillermo Garcia Lopez of Spain also won his first ever ATP title at Kitzbuhel in Austria.
