Before the Miami Open kicks off, Doubles Take looks at the latest results on the ATP and WTA tours.
MAKING ‘POWER’ MOVES
After winning their first two Grand Slam titles together and finishing as the top-ranked team on the ATP Tour in 2019, Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah experienced a rough follow-up campaign, going without a title together for the first time since 2013.
“Colombian Power” reached the final in their first tournament of 2021, but then went 1-2 over their next two events. The duo then advanced to the semifinals in Doha before entering the next tournament on the Middle Eastern swing in Dubai. There, the top seeds advanced to the final to take on the year’s hottest pair, Mate Pavic and Nikola Mektic, who have already won three titles in their first season playing together. In two tiebreak sets, Cabal and Farah prevailed over the second-seeded Croats.
