Hugo Nys and Jan Zielinski reached their first ATP Masters 1000 final as a team on Friday when they moved past Marcel Granollers and Horacio Zeballos 6-3, 7-5 at the Internazionali BNL d'Italia.

The Monegasque-Polish tandem was dominant on serve throughout the 84-minute clash on centre court. They won 93 per cent (27/29) of their first-serve points and saved all three break points they faced to advance.

Nys and Zielinski are yet to drop a set in Rome, having also defeated third seeds Ivan Dodig and Austin Krajicek. They will play for their first title of the season against Robin Haase and Botic van de Zandschulp.

Nys and Zielinski are currently fourth in the Pepperstone ATP Live Doubles Teams Rankings and could rise to top spot if they win the title. Earlier this season, they advanced to the Australian Open final, losing against Rinky Hijikata and Jason Kubler.

Haase and van de Zandschulp upset top seeds Wesley Koolhof and Neal Skupski 7-6(2), 6-4. The Dutchmen's only previous tour-level appearance as a team came at the 2022 Australian Open, where they reached the second round.
