Granollers and Zeballos, two-time doubles champions in Rome


The Spanish tennis player Marcel Granollers and the Argentine Horacio Zeballos have won this Sunday the title in the men’s doubles tournament in Rome (Italy), in the Masters 1000 category for the ATP and which is played on clay, after winning the final by 6 -2 and 6-2 to the Salvadoran Marcelo Arévalo and the Croatian Mate Pavic.

Granollers and Zeballos kept their initial serve blank and had a break option in the next one, but their opponents saved it and then showed themselves more successful in serving. But that lasted until the sixth game, where the break was immediately consolidated (5-2).

The Spanish-Argentine duo sealed the first set from the rest, after half an hour of play, and began the second set with great confidence. And like a ‘déjà vu’, there were no mishaps in the service turns until the sixth game, when Arévalo and Pavic once again gave up the initiative.

Serving the Croatian during the eighth game, with 30-40 on the scoreboard, Granollers subtracted a great parallel backhand and the Salvadoran sent his counterattack long. This is how the Spaniard and Zeballos secured the victory and also the title, second for them as a couple in the Foro Italico.
