Jan Zielinski already played the best Grand Slam of his career, but on Saturday he and Hugo Ness had a chance to qualify for the 2022 Roland Garros quarter-finals. Lloyd Glasspool and Harry Heliovara stood in their way. The British and Finns were successful in facing the opponents until last season. Thanks to that, they can go on tour and they’re doing a really good job. They are the ones who made it to the quarter-finals of the French International Championship, beating the Poles and the Monacos after 94 minutes, 7: 6 (7), 6: 3.
The first set was very balanced, and a few balls decided his fate. In the 10th inning, our representative and partner missed two set pieces when skipping Glasspool. Then a tie-breaker occurred, where Zelensky and Ness got a third chance. Glaspool and Heliovara saved themselves. They avoided defeat in the first version, and closed the second ball. The Finn put in a great performance in the net and then played a tricky air ball.
In the second part of the encounter, the scenario of the previous game was almost repeated. In the third match, Zieliński and Nys pressed hard for Heliovaara’s pass, but made a four-point break with the help of his partner. After switching sides, the roles shifted. The Polish tennis player has a serious problem. The Briton and Finn scored three break points. At the third point, Nice caught the net and the only break in the match was real.

Glaspool and Heliovara qualified for the 2022 Roland Garros quarter-finals, making them a lifelong success at the Grand Slam. At this stage of the Paris Championships, they will face the duo of Rohan Bubana and Matwe Middelkoop, who impressively eliminated (after defending five matches) Nikola Mektic and Mate Pavic, who are ranked second in doubles.
Zieliński and Nys finished the fight for the Paris meal in the third round, where they would receive 180 points for the doubles ranking. For the pole it was his best Grand Slam performance. He did not repeat his partner in Monaco, the quarter-final that he achieved in the French capital in 2021 with German Tim Potts.
