Gonzalez/Molteni Lift Cordoba Doubles Trophy | ATP Tour

Santiago Gonzalez and Andres Molteni save four of the five break points they face to triumph on Sunday in Cordoba.

This is the pair’s third ATP Tour title as a team

Santiago Gonzalez and Andres Molteni won their third ATP Tour doubles title together on Sunday when they defeated Andrej Martin and Tristan-Samuel Weissborn 7-5, 6-3 for the Cordoba Open trophy.

Gonzalez and Molteni are now 19-7 since they became a team at last year’s US Open. They also claimed trophies last year in Nur-Sultan and Stockholm.

The Mexican-Argentine pair had to claw through Match Tie-breaks in their first two matches. But they found their best form as the tournament went on. The top seeds did not lose a set in the semi-final or final.

Their impressive serving was critical in the championship clash. Gonzalez and Molteni saved four of the five break points they faced and won 75 per cent of their service points overall to triumph after one hour and 17 minutes.

Martin and Weissborn had only competed together once before this week, but they took advantage of their spot as an alternate team by winning two Match Tie-breaks to advance to the final.
