On the way to the Wimbledon final, Neil Skopsky and Desira Krausek lost one match. In the semi-finals they won 3: 6, 7: 6 (4), 7: 5 from Australia’s John Beers and China’s Shuai Zhang. On Sunday, their rivals Joe Salisbury and Harriet Dart played 300 matches. They spent, among other things Dutch No. 3 seed Wesley Kohlhoff and Demi Schurz. Skupski and Krawczyk became the champion, who won 6:2, 7:6 (1).
Skupski and Krawczyk worked very well together throughout the match. From 1:2 they won four more matches. They have two achievements. Skupski used his break point at 4:2 with a great comeback. At 5:2 they were knocked out after an arrow miss with a forehand. There were no breakthroughs in the second batch. The British and Americans achieved their victory in breaking the tie.
In the 81-minute match, Skupski and Krawczyk scored 32 of 39 points on their first pass. They didn’t have to defend any break points, and they used two of the seven opportunities themselves.

For Skopsky, this is his first Grand Slam title. Krawczyk achieved his second victory in a case like this. Roland Garros won this year with her competitor on Sunday Salisbury. This was the first time Dart had reached the finals of such a tournament.
It’s been a great year for Krausek. In three Grand Slam tournaments, she has reached at least the semi-finals. At the Australian Open, along with Salisbury in the fight for the final, they were defeated by Samantha Stosur and Matthew Ebden.
