Dodig/Krajicek Continue Late Surge In Bid For Turin

Top seeds Arevalo/Rojer advance to Stockholm final

Ivan Dodig and Austin Krajicek advanced to their second straight ATP Tour final with a Saturday victory in Naples. After a deep run last week in Florence, the Croatian-American pair will now play for its second title of the season at the Tennis Napoli Cup.

The top seeds edged Italians Lorenzo Sonego and Andrea Vavassori 6-7(8), 6-3, 11-9 to reach their fifth tour-level final of 2022. The Lyon champions sit 12th in the Pepperstone ATP Live Doubles Teams Rankings as they chase a Top 7 place which would guarantee qualification for the Nitto ATP Finals.

Now on 2,500 points, Dodig/Krajicek will need to continue their strong form in Basel and Paris in order to close what is currently a 650-point gap to seventh place. They can add 100 points to their tally in Sunday’s final, where they will met third-seeded Aussies Matthew Ebden and John Peers.

Ebden/Peers advanced to the final with a 6-3, 7-5 win against Nikola Cacic and Aisam-Ul-Haq Qureshi.

Dutch Delight In Antwerp
Botic van de Zandschulp and Tallon Griekspoor continued their unseeded run at the European Open with a 6-3, 6-4 against Frenchmen Nicolas Mahut and Edouard Roger-Vasselin. Prior to downing the fourth seeds in Saturday’s semi-finals, the pair opened its Antwerp campaign with an upset of top seeds Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah.

They will look to continue their perfect run on the week by winning a fourth straight-sets match in the final against second seeds Rohan Bopanna and Matwe Middelkoop, who advanced on Friday with a 7-6(6), 2-6, 10-7 win against Dutchmen Sander Arends and David Pel.
