The eighth seed, otukasz Kubot and Marcelo Melo had problems in the opening match on Thursday, but everything went great on Friday. The Polish-Brazilian couple faced off against duo Sander Arends and Mattois Middelkoop. They defeated the Dutch in 2018 on grass in Den Bosch. Now the stake in their fight was the third round of Wimbledon 2021.
Kubot and Melo played brilliantly. They avoided problems with their management and developed up to 11 break points. They broke the opponent’s serve three times, thanks to which they finally won 6:2, 6:4 after 73 minutes.
Our representative and partner are particularly fond of the Arends service. In the first set they broke his serve in the third and seventh games. However, in the second batch, the break was decisive with the score 3. The Dutch defended four balls of the match, but on the fifth time the Polish-Brazilian duo ended the match.
The 2017 Wimbledon champions scored in the third round of this year’s doubles tournament. Their next contenders on Saturday will be chosen (weather permitting) from Britons Lloyd Glasspool and Finn Harry Heliovara or Britain’s Alistair Gray and Aidan McHugh.
