Blumberg/Sock advance in Newport
Krawietz and Tecau clinched the NOVENTI OPEN title in Halle last month, and also reached the final at the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell and the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament in Rotterdam. The German-Romanian tandem struck seven aces and broke their opponents three times to advance in 69 minutes. They have yet to drop a set this week in Hamburg.
They won 69 per cent (29/42) of their first-service points to set up a meeting with Andre Begemann and Albano Olivetti after the pair received a walkover from Roberto Carballes Baena and Marco Cecchinato.
