Gonzalez/Molteni Storm To Buenos Aires Title

Mexican-Argentine team claim fourth ATP Tour title together

Santiago Gonzalez and Andres Molteni have wasted no time clicking as a team.

Gonzalez and Molteni, who joined forces at last year’s US Open, won their fourth ATP Tour title as a team on Sunday when they defeated Fabio Fognini and Horacio Zeballos 6-1, 6-1 to triumph at the Argentina Open.

The champions won 53 per cent of their return points and broke serve five times in their 46-minute victory. They did not face a break point against the Italian-Argentine duo.

Gonzalez and Molteni lost just one set en route to the crown. They are now 23-7 together, including title runs in Nut-Sultan and Stockholm last year as well as Cordoba last week.

Fognini and Zeballos were competing together for the first time. Zeballos’s full-time partner is Spaniard Marcel Granollers, with whom he has played in the Nitto ATP Finals twice (2020-21).
