Marcel Granollers has expressed hope that he and Horacio Zeballos will play doubles at more tournaments together after winning the Montreal” masters>. Granollers, 33, and 34-year-old Zeballos had a dream team debut as they beat Robin Haase and Wesley Koolhof in the final 7-5 7-5 to win it all.
Granollers and Zeballos’ run to the title also included wins over Ivan Dodig and Filip Polasek, Henri Kontinen and John Peers, Andrey Rublev and Alexander, as well as semifinal win over Rajeev Ram and Joe Salisbury.
“It’s our first time we played together. We knew each other for a long time and we enjoyed this week a lot,” Granollers said post-match, as revealed on the ATP website. “I think we played a great tournament and I hope to play more tournaments with him.”
Making it all the way in Montreal was extra special for Granollers, who dedicated the title to his late grandmother — who passed away a month ago. Zeballos also didn’t hide his happiness after the match as he said: “This is my first time here, so I think I’m going to come back for sure.
It’s been a really nice week and with Marcel of course, we’ve enjoyed this week as one of the best moments in our careers. So I can’t say anything else. I’m so happy”.
