Granollers/Zeballos Upset Top Seeds Koolhof/Skupski In Roland Garros QFs
The 10th seeds have not dropped a set in the tournament, and they carried their strong form into the quarter-finals with a 6-3, 7-6(4) win against Koolhof/Skupski on Court Simonne-Mathieu. The Spanish-Argentine duo saved the only break point they faced and won 85 per cent of their first-serve points in the victory while converting on one of their two break chances.
Granollers/Zeballos had not lost more than three games in a set this fortnight until they were pushed to a tie-break by the top seeds, but a strong finish ensured their perfect set record remained intact.
They will next meet fourth seeds Ivan Dodig and Austin Krajicek in Thursday's semi-finals, after the fourth seeds moved past 11th-seeded Germans Kevin Krawietz and Tim Puetz 7-6(6), 5-7, 6-4. Dodig/Krajicek, who notched three of their four Roland Garros wins in a deciding set, secured the win despite converting on just one of nine break points on Court Suzanne-Lenglen.
