Zverev Brothers Into Halle Doubles Final
Sascha has a chance to complete Halle double
Brothers Alexander Zverev and Mischa Zverev are one match away from their second ATP World Tour doubles title of the year, scoring an impressive 6-3, 6-3 win on Saturday against second seeds Raven Klaasen and Rajeev Ram at the Gerry Weber Open in Halle.
The German duo delighted the home crowd by saving all six break points they faced en route to securing victory in 56 minutes. They’ve only dropped 14 games on their way to the final. Zverev/Zverev won their first title as a team this February in Montpellier (d. Martin/Nestor).
Alexander will also have the chance to leave Halle with two winner’s trophies as he first plays Roger Federer in the singles final.
Awaiting them in the championship match are top seeds Lukasz Kubot and Marcelo Melo. Kubot/Melo are still unbeaten on grass this season after taking the title last week in ‘s-Hertogenbosch (d. Klaasen/Ram).
Over at the Aegon Championships in London, third seeds Jamie Murray and Bruno Soares were unable to complete their semi-final match with Marin Cilic and Marcin Matkowski due to rain. They’ll come back on Sunday with Murray/Soares serving at 1-6, 5-3, 40/40.
Cilic will first play his singles final against Feliciano Lopez before taking the court again to finish out the doubles match. The winning team will face French duo Julien Benneteau and Edouard Roger-Vasselin for the title.
