The latest champs are crowned during the spring clay-court stretch for the ATP and WTA Tours. Doubles Take is here with a look at the latest results.
The Drive to Win
Over the course of the past several years, one of the most prolific title winners on the WTA Tour has been Demi Schuurs of the Netherlands. 2022 started rather inauspiciously for the 28-year-old, however, as she was on the shelf due to injury for a prolonged spell, then had to adjust to playing with a new partner, American Desirae Krawczyk, who had also established herself among the game's best in recent years.
Seeded second at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in Stuttgart, Germany, the duo dominated its first two matches, then battled through a match tiebreak in the semis to reach their first final together. In the championship match, they faced Coco Gauff and Shuai Zhang, the top seeds. Relying on their increasing familiarity with each other's games, Krawczyk and Schuurs came away with a straight-sets win to pick up their first title together. It's the 15th career title for Schuurs, while Krawczyk claimed her seventh.
