Krawietz/Mies advance in Munich
Maximo Gonzalez and Andre Goransson overcame Pablo Cuevas and Joao Sousa 7-6(3), 7-5 on Thursday to reach the Millennium Estoril Open semi-finals.
The Argentine-Swedish tandem saved two set points on serve at 4-5 in the first set and broke three times to triumph after one hour and 39 minutes.
Gonzalez and Goransson are teaming for the first time this week and will next meet Ben McLachlan and Raven Klaasen after the fourth seeds edged past Jonathan Erlich and Lloyd Harris 4-6, 6-1, 10-4.
Klaasen earned his 300th tour-level doubles win on Tuesday and is aiming to win his third ATP Tour trophy with McLachlan.
Krawietz/Mies March On In Munich
Third seeds Kevin Krawietz and Andreas Mies continued to back up their Barcelona title win on Thursday, advancing to the semi-finals at the BMW Open by American Express.
The German duo saved all four break points they faced en route to a 6-2, 6-2 victory over Roman Jebavy and Andres Molteni. Krawietz is defending the crown he won in 2021 with Wesley Koolhof at the ATP 250 event, with Mies missing most of last year due to knee surgery.
Krawietz and Mies will next play Lloyd Glasspool and Harri Heliovaara after the British-Finnish team upset second seeds John Peers and Filip Polasek 7-6(1), 7-6(6).
Andrey Golubev and Fabrice Martin backed up their win over top seeds Nikola Mektic and Mate Pavic by eliminating Ivan Sabanov and Matej Sabanov 6-3, 7-5 in one hour and 34 minutes.
The unseeded pair will meet David Vega Hernandez and Rafael Matos in the last four after the Brazilian-Spanish upset fourth seeds Rohan Bopanna and Matwe Middelkoop 6-3, 6-4.
