Oliver Marach and Mate Pavic have retained their crowns. Titled last year at the Parc des Eaux-Vives, the Austrian and the Croatian won 6-4 6-4 in the final ahead of the pair formed by the Australian Matthew Ebden and the Swede Robert Lindstedt. They stole the service of their opponents three times to conclude this final in 1h15.
Seeded No. 1 on the table, Oliver Marach and Mate Pavic plucked their sixth title, the first since their success last year in the same Bank Eric Sturdza Geneva Open. It will be remembered that the two men, victorious in the Australian Open in 2018, stole last year’s ATP race which crowns the best doubles team.
With this success in Geneva which was held onto by a thread – the pair were at the point of defeat on Friday in front of the Frenchman Fabrice Martin and the German Andreas Mies –, Oliver Marach and Mate Pavic arrive perfectly “pitched” for the supreme rendezvous of Roland-Garros.
