Mektic/Pavic To Face Granollers/Zeballos For Madrid Title

The Croatians are going for their sixth title of 2021

Nikola Mektic and Mate Pavic are one win away from the the Mutua Madrid Open title after defeating Sander Gille and Joran Vliegen 6-4, 6-2 on Saturday.

The second seeds will take on Marcel Granollers and Horacio Zeballos in Sunday's final after the third seeds received a walkover from Tim Puetz and Alexander Zverev. Zverev beat Dominic Thiem in the singles semi-finals and will vie for the trophy against Matteo Berrettini on Sunday. 

Mektic and Pavic, who are 32-3 so far this year, are going for their sixth title of 2021 and third ATP Masters 1000 crown after winning Miami and Monte-Carlo. Granollers and Zeballos are looking to capture their first title of the season after reaching the Acapulco final in March. The pair picked up three crowns in 2020. 

The doubles final will take place on Sunday at 3:30pm inside Manolo Santana Stadium.
