Granollers and Zeballos put a foot and a half in the semifinals

Marcel Granollers and Horacio Zeballos are very close to achieving a new achievement in the successful collaboration that began in 2019 and that has led them so far to win six titles and play two Grand Slam finals (US Open 2019 and Wimbledon 2021). The Spanish and the Argentinian beat brilliantly (6-4 and 7-6 (4) in 1h40) the number one couple in the world, the one formed by the Croatians Nicola Mektic and Mate Pavic, and have a foot and a half in the semifinals of the ATP Finals for the second year in a row. Their classification will be mathematical if in the afternoon session Dodig and Polasek, whom they beat on Sunday, beat Krawietz and Tecau. If not, they would only be out in some case if there was a triple draw at two wins in the Green Group. They also have a good 4-1 balance in sets.

Granollers-Zeballos and Mektic-Pavic had met three times before, all this year, with two wins for the Balkans and one win. for the Spanish-Argentine duo in the final of the Mutua Madrid Open.

The head-to-head was even after a match that the winners put on track with a break in the third game of the first set, against Mektic’s service. In that heat they did not have to defend a single break point. Yes in the second, to put the 4-4 on the scoreboard and then to prevent the Croats from equalizing the match and placing the 5-5. In the tiebreaker, after a controversy because Mektic requested the revision of a Zeballos serve, the chair umpire did not see it and the video did not work, a magnificent direct rest-winning blow from Granollers, who was the one who ended the duel by crossing feline in the net, facilitated the triumph of that duo that aims high in Turin
