Bolelli/Gonzalez Clinch Mallorca Crown
Despite it being a semi-final match in Mallorca, the Italian-Argentine tandem have been crowned champions due to World No. 1 Novak Djokovic and Carlos Gomez-Herrera withdrawing after their semi-final victory on Thursday.
”The second set was really tight, as always, it massively depends on one or two points," Bolelli said. “We wanted to win this tournament, we played three really good matches. It was the second tournament for us on grass together.
“This is the third title for us, so it is a very good year at the moment and have confidence for Wimbledon next week. I really enjoyed this week, the tournament was really well organised with good facilities.”
Bolelli and Gonzalez won 88 per cent (30/34) of their first-service points and broke serve four times to record victory in 68 minutes. They won the Chile Dove Men+Care Open title in Santiago and the Emilia-Romagna Open in Parma earlier this year, and are 20-7 on the season.
The fourth seeds raced ahead in the opening set, not facing a break point on serve to claim it in 25 minutes. Bolelli and Gonzalez then battled through the second set to move to 3-1 in tour-level finals this year.
Daniell and Oswald captured their only ATP Tour team title at the Forte Village Sardegna Open in Sardinia last October, and are now 15-13 on the season.
