Kevin Krawietz and Tim Pütz defeated Santiago Gonzalez and Edouard Roger-Vasselin in the Wimbledon round of 16 with a score of 6:4, 3:6, 6:3. The Germans did not let themselves be ruffled despite a rainstorm that led to a 90-minute break.
Together, the German tennis doubles team defeated the favoured Santiago Gonzalez and Edouard Roger-Vasselin in the Wimbledon round of 16. For Krawietz it is the second entry into the quarter-finals at Wimbledon, while for Pütz it is a premiere.
The first set lasted only 35 minutes but, due to a rainstorm in London, dragged on for over two hours. After the break, Krawietz and Pütz nevertheless kept their focus and won the first set 6:4.
In the second set, Gonzalez and Roger-Vasselin managed to match the Germans and steal the first service game from them. The decision to enter the quarter-finals was then made in the third set. Here the Germans got the decisive break and won 6:3.
In the quarter-finals, Krawietz and Pütz will meet the British-New Zealand duo Jamie Murray and Michael Venus, who are seeded 13th.
Kevin Krawietz has already bowed out of the mixed competition. He and his Chinese partner Zhaoxuan Yang were narrowly defeated in the round of 16 by the two Australians Matthew Ebden and Ellen Perez with 7:6 (12:10), 4:6 and 6:7 (9:11).
