To date, the stars of Polish tennis and Polish sports have bypassed each other. As much as Iga Świątek, Hubert Hurkacz played a little less. When it was the other way around and Hubert Hurkacz was doing well, the Raszyn tennis player finished a little faster.
Hubi took an example from Iga
Now, finally, everything turned out as it should, in both directions. Hurkacz, in addition to his impressive performance in the singles, because the semi-final was such a result, he won the doubles match. Swiatek did a great job on the singles, victorious after his latest show of strength against Naomi Osaka.
Naomiga – Special congratulations from Naomi Osaka on Iga Świątek
Hurkacz played in Miami Saturday night right after the Iga. It can be said that at Hard Rock Court the spirit and memories of our great tennis player’s battle still remain. The same winning atmosphere. In the stands you can see white and red flags, you can hear many of our compatriots. And they were also the ones who fantastically encouraged the Polish-American duo to fight.
mega scale syndrome
Two pairs that measure more than four meters together. Four meters and four centimeters to be exact, because the side of the Hurkacz, measuring 196 centimeters, was 12 centimeters higher than the Eisner.

Both men performed together for the third time. Previously, they formed a couple together in Montreal in 2019 and Cincinnati (New York) in 2020. They did not work out at that time, but they got to know each other so well that now they use it perfectly.
I helped ten aces
The Florida deck preferred the players to deliver a good performance. The Pole and the American scored a total of ten aces in the final against four opponents. The winners didn’t make a double serving mistake. Details and nuances were crucial to the result. In the first set tiebreak, one small break, in the second set, a tenth set break with the ball being a matching ball and a move giving opponents a potential parity. Everything then turned out the way Horkacz and Eisner had planned.
Hubert won his second ATP double after Paris-Percy in 2020 with Felix Auger-Aliassime. To this he added another one from the ATP 250 series in Metz. At that time, together with Jan Zelensky.
Playing with Hurkacz is fun
– It is a pleasure to play in one team with Hoba – said Isner after the victory, who spontaneously reacted during the match to victories, especially the one that Hurkacz was closing in on everything. It was clear that with the pole, he was specially packed and was happy to be back at the highest level.
It was, without a doubt, a week full of fun, said my beloved. Miami is a special place for me. I’ve won singles here, I’ve won doubles now. I feel at home here – added the inhabitant of Wroclaw. It is noteworthy that Eisner was victorious once here in the singles. This happened in 2018. In history, there were only four such players. In addition to Hurkacz and Isner, Swiss Roger Federer and Dutchman Richard Krajicek also won singles and doubles in Miami.
Hubi in the elite! Here are the pros who triumphed in Miami in singles and doubles.
All Polish fans were very relieved. And those who were in Florida and those who cheered for whites and reds from the country and various other places in the world. It was a real Sabbath. We will certainly remember the day when Iga Švetik for the first time, and then Hubert Hurkacz, won first. Although of course we hope that these weekends will be repeated more often. Also with the second singles final, which was very close this time. Hobi lost a bit to Carlos Alcaraz in the semi-finals and who knows if he’ll win the tiebreak for him, he won’t score a double here in the end.
The couple was there
Iga will have a Sunny Doublet, Hurkacz Double in Miami. Now it’s just an alternative story, but on the other hand, it could actually happen. The balls were few from him. – I hope next time I will do a little better in this competition. Carlos has been amazing this season, but I felt like I was on the cusp of success – he also remembered the semi-finals of the hobby singles.
In general, the Poles performed well, not to mention excelled. In the two thousand.win two titles and add to the semi-finals … well, well – it just doesn’t fit in your head. Our tennis is getting stronger. There are still a lot of big leagues ahead of us this season. If every second or third we are as successful as in Miami, this tournament will be the best in history for us on the court.
