ATP Monte Carlo: The Next Sensation – Weissborn reaches ATP Masters 1000 title – ÖTV

Sam Wisburn’s thrilling run at the Rolex Monte Carlo Masters never ended and now continues early Saturday afternoon. The 31-year-old surprisingly found himself in the doubles final of his first ATP Masters 1000 tournament with regular partner Romain Arneodo. The left-hander from Vienna and Monegasse, who received a wildcard in Arneaudo’s homeland, defeated the fourth duo of absolute world-class players and also eliminated Germans Kevin Krawicz (ATP double 16) and Tim Pütz (ATP double 28) in the semifinals 7: 6 (7), 4: 6 and 10: 7 in the match tie-break. Cisborne and Arnaudou, who sit just 105th and 89th in the world doubles rankings, will only find out their opponents in Sunday’s title battle on Saturday night, when fifth-seeded Croatian-American duo Ivan Dodig (ATP doubles 10) and Austin double. Krajicek (ATP doubles 9) meets France’s Fabrice Martin (ATP doubles 26) and Germany’s Andreas Mies (ATP doubles 21) in the second semi-final. Weissborn reached his only ATP doubles final in February 2022, at the ATP 250 clay court tournament in Córdoba (Argentina). So Monte Carlo is now his second chance at a senior title – and this is at an event of the highest category after the Grand Slam.

Arneodo/Weisborn has already had three impressively smooth and impressive strokes in the first three rounds, starting on Wednesday, without dropping a set. They beat former world number one Marcelo Melo (ATP double 38) from Brazil and German singles player Alexander Zverev (ATP double 319) 6:2, 6:4 and then against the second best doubles team in the world, the American. Rajeev Ram (ATP doubles 3) and Brett Joe Salisbury (ATP doubles 4), Australian Open 2020 and US Open 2021 and 2022 champions, 6-2, 6-3. In the quarterfinals, the sixth-seeded British-Finnish pair Lloyd Glasspool and Hario Heliovara (each double 11) 6: 2, 7: 6 (3) was not a stumbling block. And now the coup against Krawietz, winner of the French Open 2020 and 2021, as well as Pütz, winner of Paris-Bercy 2021. Arneodo / Weissborn are already guaranteed €76,070 in prize money per capita and 600 ATP Pride points. With the latter, Wisbourne would significantly improve his best position to date in the standings from 77th, and the direct rankings see him currently at 61st. An impressive victory would bring €141,435 in prize money per capita or 1,000 ATP points, which would put him Among the 50 best people in the world.
