Chilean Duo Claims Maiden Doubles Crown
Nicolas Jarry and Hans Podlipnik-Castillo are the men’s doubles champions in Quito following a 7-6(6), 6-3 victory over Austin Krajicek and Jackson Withrow in just over an hour of play.
For their victory in the Ecuadorian capital, Jarry and Podlipnik-Castillo add 250 points to their ATP Ranking and share $27,170 in prize money.
The Ecuador Open marks the first ATP World Tour title in either singles or doubles for the Chilean duo, with Podlipnik-Castillo reaching just one other doubles final (2017 Kitzbuhel w/Vasilevski) and Jarry only one match win in doubles, a round-of-16 victory in Vina del Mar with Christian Garin.
Jarry and Podlipnik-Castillo were dominant on serve all match, winning 91 per cent of their first serves and surrendering a break of serve just once at the start of the second set.
The first-time doubles champions dropped just one set all week and prevailed over French wild cards Dorian Descloix and former World No. 6 in singles Gael Monfils in the semi-finals.
