Koolhof/Skuspki Clinch Doha Crown

Third seeds are now 16-2 on the season

Wesley Koolhof and Neal Skupski capped off another dominant week in style Friday at the Qatar ExxonMobil Open.

The third seeds defeated Rohan Bopanna and Denis Shapovalov 7-6(4), 6-1 to capture the title in Doha.

The Dutch-British pair dropped just one set en route to the championship match and played with confidence throughout against Bopanna and Shapovalov. They combined strong serving with deep returns to dictate and triumph after 78 minutes.

With their victory, Koolhof and Skupski are now 16-2 on the year, having clinched three tour-level titles since they first teamed at the start of the season. They lifted trophies on Australian soil at the Melbourne Summer Set and the Adelaide International 2 in January.

Individually, Koolhof has now won 10 tour-level crowns, while Skupski has earned eight titles at this level.

Bopanna and Shapovalov were seeking their first trophy together, after also reaching the final in Stuttgart in 2019.
