Krawietz/Mies progress in Munich
Maximo Gonzalez and Andre Goransson defeated Pablo Cuevas and Joao Sousa 7-6(3), 7-5 on Thursday to reach the semifinals of the Millennium Estoril Open.
The Argentinian-Swedish tandem saved two set points on serve at 4-5 in the first set and broke three times to triumph after an hour and 39 minutes.
Gonzalez and Goransson team up for the first time this week and will next meet Ben McLachlan and Raven Klaasen after the fourth seeds edged Jonathan Erlich and Lloyd Harris 4-6, 6-1, 10-4.
Klaasen claimed his 300th doubles win at Tour level on Tuesday and is aiming to win his third ATP Tour trophy with McLachlan.
Krawietz/Mies walk in Munich
Third seeds Kevin Krawietz and Andreas Mies continued to support Barcelona’s title win on Thursday, advancing to the semi-finals of the BMW Open by American Express.
The German duo saved all four break points they faced en route to a 6-2, 6-2 win over Roman Jebavy and Andres Molteni. Krawietz is defending the crown he won in 2021 with Wesley Koolhof at the ATP 250 event, with Mies missing most of last year due to knee surgery.
Krawietz and Mies next face Lloyd Glasspool and Harri Heliovaara after the Anglo-Finnish side toppled second seeds John Peers and Filip Polasek 7-6(1), 7-6(6).
Andrey Golubev and Fabrice Martin backed up their win over top seeds Nikola Mektic and Mate Pavic by knocking out Ivan Sabanov and Matej Sabanov 6-3, 7-5 in an hour and 34 minutes.
The unseeded pair will meet David Vega Hernandez and Rafael Matos in the last four after the Brazilian-Spanish upset fourth seeds Rohan Bopanna and Matwe Middelkoop 6-3, 6-4.
