Marcel Granollers and Horacio Zeballos will have another opportunity to win their first Grand Slam and thus put the icing on the cake for a professional and friendship relationship that began in 2019 and which is proving very successful. The Spanish and the Argentine, fourth favorites, beat Italian Simone Bolelli and another Argentine, Máximo González in three sets (6-4, 6-4 and 7-6 (3) in 2:13) and will meet on Saturday in the Wimbledon final to the number one, the Croatians Nikola Mektic and Mate Pavic, who could with the American Rajeev Ram and the British Joe Salisbury in a much more disputed match (7-6 (6), 6-3, 6-7 ( 2) and 7-6 (5) at 3:19) .

Granollers and Zeballos have won five tournaments together (the 1,000 Masters in Canada, Rome and Madrid, in addition to the ATP 500 in Rio de Janeiro and the 250 in Buenos Aires) and have played three other finals, in Kitzbuhel, Acapulco and the US Open in 2019. In New York they touched glory, but fell to the best at that time, Colombians Cabal and Farah. Now they will have to face again the leaders of the ranking, Mektic and Pavic, who could not play Roland Garros because of COVID (the first one tested positive).

If they lift the trophy at Wimbledon, that would be the bigger win of the two. They have only lost one set in the five matches played in the tournament, against the Skupski brothers, and they are in a sweet moment to try to make bad the predictions that they give as favorites to their next rivals.
