Double triumph for Bolelli/Vavassori

The Italians beat the Germans Krawietz/Pütz in the final of the 31st TERRA WORTMANN OPEN

The Italian top doubles pairing of Simone Bolelli and Andrea Vavassori won the 31st TERRA WORTMANN OPEN without dropping a set. In the final, the world's best doubles team of 2024 beat Germany's Kevin Krawietz and Tim Pütz 7:6(3) and 7:6(5). The Italians, seeded number one, thus won their first title in Halle; last year, they were beaten in the Champions Tiebreak by the Brazilian-Australian combination Marcelo Melo and John Peers.

Four matches, four victories in two sets - Simone Bolelli and Andrea Vavassori are the deserved winners of the TERRA WORTMANN, but they needed two tiebreaks in the final to secure the big trophy. The first set was clearly dominated by the servers, with neither team able to earn a break point. The tie-break had to decide the match and it was very even. Up to 4:3 for the Italians and Service Pütz. The player from Frankfurt was unable to convert either of his serves into points. 6:3 for Bolelli/Vavassori. Three set points, the first of which the number one seeds from southern Europe converted to make it 7:6.

The second set was similar, the big exception being Bolelli's serve at 3:3, where he had to fend off three break chances (the only ones in the entire match). Once again, the tie-break had to decide the match. And again, Bolelli/Vavassori quickly gained an advantage. Krawietz dropped a service - 5:3 for Italy. The second seeded Germans came back with virtually the last chance, but Krawietz failed to bring home his own service for the second time - 6:5. Bolelli served, backhand volley from Vavassori - the match was over, the title went to the slightly favored Simone Bolelli and Andrea Vavassori with 7:6 and 7:6. After the doubles final, the 29-year-old Vavassori went straight on to Wimbledon, where he will compete in the singles qualifier on Monday.

German tennis must therefore continue to hope for the first triumph of an all-German doubles team since 2009. Back then, Christopher Kas and Philipp Kohlschreiber won in Halle.  It was the second final in Halle for Krawietz and Pütz. However, they played the first one with different partners. Krawietz from Coburg won the 2021 TERRA WORTMANN OPEN together with Romanian Horia Tecau, while Pütz from Frankfurt suffered a defeat in the final together with New Zealander Michael Venus in 2022.
