tenis news

This Thursday, the duo formed by Brazilian Bruno Soares and Croatian Mateo Pavic, secured the second decision followed by Grand Slams this season. The pair beat Colombians Juan Cabal and Robert Farah (seed number 1) in the semifinals of Roland Garros. The victory was in consecutive sets (7/6, 7/5), in 1h44min. 

After winning the US Open, Soares will make the first Parisian Grand Slam final in his career. Without breaks, the first set was decided only in the tie-break. In the second, the partial leadership was of the opponents of the Brazilian and the Croat until 4/2. But with two breaks, Soares and Pavic turned and closed the game on 7/5. 

The arrival at the decision also places the tennis player from Minas Gerais in the top 10 of the ATP doubles ranking. At 38, Soares already has two titles in the US Open and one in the Australian Open. The other finalist will leave the match between Dutch Wesley Koolhof and Croatian Nikola Mekti with the Germans (current champions of the tournament) Andreas Mies and Kevin Krawietz.
