Croatia’s Mektić and Pavić win third ATP title  

Croatian doubles team Nikola Mektić and Mate Pavić have won their third ATP title together on Sunday. 

Mektić and Pavić beat Kevin Krawietz and Horia Tecau 7-6(7), 6-2 in the final of the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament in Rotterdam to claim the title. 

“We came up, throughout the entire tournament, with a high level of serving. We only got broken a few times. That was the key. It is indoor tennis, the serve is a very important part of the game. We did very well and, in the end, I am very happy to win the tournament,” Mektić said. 

Today’s match was the Croatians 17th since they joined up as a team at the start of this year. They have only lost one match, to fellow Croatian Ivan Dodig and Filip Polasek in semi-final of the Australian Open.

Mektić and Pavić add this title to their Antalya Open and the Murray River Open titles.
