Winning streaks roll on and a major event pushes forward. Doubles Take is here with a weekly look at the results on both tours.
Hometown Heroes, Part I
If their run in Barcelona set it up, then the latest title in Munich confirms it:
Kevin Krawietz and Andreas Mies are back, and given their past successes, are among the leading contenders for the top prize at Roland Garros in a few weeks.
The German duo—which missed most of last year playing together due to an injury to Mies—just won their second title in as many weeks. The two-time French Open champions eked out a first-round win in Munich, then took their next two matches in straight sets to reach the final against another team that’s been on a tear: Rafael Matos and David Vega Hernandez. After dropping the first set, Krawietz and Mies rallied to claim the title in a match tiebreak for their sixth team trophy. Krawietz also extended his personal winning streak at the tournament, having picked up his first title on home soil in 2021 with Wesley Koolhof.
