DOUBLES TITLE FOR LIPSKY AND SHARAN
Scott Lipsky and Divij Sharan are the winners of the European Open 2017 in the doubles. The duo was too strong in the final for Santiago Gonzalez and Julio Peralta. Both duos were very balanced in set 1, but Lipsky and Sharan were just a little more alert at the net: 6-4. In the second set, Gonzalez and Peralta went up a gear and almost immediately went through the service game of Lipsky and Peralta. The American and Indian saw set 2 go to their opponents with 6-2.
A super tiebreak had to indicate the winner. As in the first set, Lipsky and Sharan were the stronger duo at the more important points. Gonzalez and Peralta had to allow a mini-break early on and could not keep up the chase.
