Kevin Krawietz and Andreas Mies triumphed at the BMW Open in Munich on Sunday. In the final, the German doubles defeated Brazilian Rafael Matos and Spaniard David Vega 4:6, 6:4, 10:7. After winning the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell, this is the second tournament triumph in a row for "Kramies". Congratulations!
The German doubles team secured their place in the final one day earlier in the semi-finals against Lloyd Glasspool (Great Britain) and Harri Heliövaara with 7:5, 6:3.
In the first set of Sunday's match, Matos/Vega gave themselves an advantage. In the second game, the Brazilian-Spanish doubles had three break points on their racket. But "Kramies" withstood the pressure and took the lead with a double break to 4:1. With a convincing service game of Krawietz, the German doubles decided the second set in their favour. It went into the decisive match tiebreak. Brose-supported tennis pro Kevin Krawietz served strongly twice at first. With his best return of the day and a hard-hitting longline backhand, the Coburg player converted the second match point after 1:39 hours of play. Krawietz and Mies won the title in the champions' tiebreak 10:7.
For the German doubles team, this was their first tournament win together on German soil. "It is therefore something very special and has a very high significance for us," Krawietz emphasised after the triumph.
