Maximo Gonzalez and Andre Goransson save four of the seven break points they face on Saturday to reach the Estoril doubles final.


Krawietz/Mies into Munich final

Maximo Gonzalez and Andre Goransson had not played with or against each other before this week, but that has not bothered the unseeded team. The Argentine-Swedish duo reached the Millennium Estoril Open final on Saturday.

Gonzalez and Goransson defeated fourth seeds Raven Klaasen and Ben McLachlan 2-6, 7-6(7), 10-6 in the semi-finals. It was the second time they needed to battle through a Match Tie-break this week.

In the final, home favourites will be waiting. Portuguese wild cards Nuno Borges and Francisco Cabral continued their dream run with a 6-2, 6-4 victory against top seeds Jamie Murray and Michael Venus.

Borges and Cabral are certainly confident, having won eight ATP Challenger Tour titles together in the past 12 months. Neither had played an ATP Tour doubles match before this week.
