Ram has now won three tour-level doubles titles this season, adding to victories at the BMW Open by FWU (w/Dodig) and the VTB Kremlin Cup (w/Krajicek). The 34-year-old American owns 17 tour-level doubles trophies.

We've played against each other in singles and doubles. It was a really great chemistry. We felt comfortable right from the beginning and had some really great wins."
