Szymon Walków and Jan Zieliński have resumed their common beginnings. The Polish couple went to Italy, where they reached the semi-finals of the indoor hard court competitor in Biella.
A month ago, Szymon Walków and Jan Zieliński played together at Biella and reached the final, with only two points being two points away from winning the title. Now Biało-Czerwoni is back in Italy after the team’s Davis Cup break.
The Poles did not have to go to court on Wednesday due to the withdrawal of German-British duo Benjamin Hassan and Ryan Benniston. However, they likely won the quarter-finals on Thursday with Germany’s Daniel Masor and Austria’s Jorge Rodionov 6: 2, 6: 2.
In the semifinal on Friday, Walków and Zieliński faced top-rated duo Denis Mołczanow and Serhiy Stachowski. The Ukrainians kept their cool in the tiebreakers and won in the finals 7: 6 (4), 7: 6 (5). On Saturday, representatives of our eastern neighbors will fight to win the championship with French duo Quentin Halles and Tristan Lamassine.
For their performances in Biella, Walków and Zieliński will each receive 29 doubles ranking points and a check for € 930 to be shared. The fourth edition of this year’s Biella Challenger Indoor event begins on Monday.
