Arevalo/Rojer Earn Maiden Team Trophy

Top seeds triumph without losing a set

Top seeds Marcelo Arevalo and Jean-Julien Rojer claimed their first ATP Tour title as a team on Sunday when they defeated Briton Lloyd Glasspool and Finland's Harri Heliovaara 7-6(4), 6-4 to win the Dallas Open.

"We're super happy about this title. This is our first title together. We've been doing great things together. We started the year playing great, maybe not having the best results or the results we wanted, but we kept working together as a team, working on those little details," Arevalo said. "We started seeing those results that we wanted."

Entering the week, the new tandem was 2-3 on the season. But Arevalo and Rojer did not lose a set in Dallas to lift the trophy.

"We're hoping to have a good year together. The biggest thing for us is to keep working. We're a new team, so normally how this goes [is] you put in a lot of work and results come and go, but hopefully we'll get on a stretch where results start happening for us," Rojer said. "It certainly did this week."

Arevalo and Rojer saved all three break points they faced and won 81 per cent of their service points to earn the title after one hour and 27 minutes.

Glasspool and Heliovaara were pursuing their second tour-level trophy together after emerging victorious in Marseille last year.
