Martin/Mies vs Dogig/Kajicek: Martin/Mies to Win

After defeating the tournament favourites, the duo of Martin and Mies did not miss the opportunity to play in the Monte Carlo Finals. Defeating Koolhof and Skupski was not easy, it was a battle that went all the way to a super tiebreak where Martin and Mies made a great effort to advance to the semifinals.

Monte Carlo 2023 Doubles Contenders

1. Wesley Koolhof and Neal Skupski (Eliminated)

The current world number one doubles team won three ATP Masters 1000 titles last year and are expected to make it to the semifinals where they could face Nikola Mektic and Mate Pavic.

So far the duo has done very well, but they came close to elimination last time out when they faced the attractive team of Karen Khachanov and Andrey Rublev. Still, the number one seeds confirmed their presence in the quarter-finals. Final.

2. Rajeev Ram and Joe Salisbury (Eliminated)

Defending champions who have won three ATP Masters 1000 titles together. They will have a tough opening match against Romain Arneodo and Sam Weissborn or Marcelo Melo and Alexander Zverev.

3. Marcelo Arévalo and Jean-Julien Rojer (Eliminated)

The current French Open champions are in excellent form, having already won two titles this year.  After defeating the Tsitsipas brothers in the second round, the Argentine-Netherlands pair will face a German team that won their previous two matches in straight sets, Kevin Kravitz and Tim Puetz. This will undoubtedly be one of the best duels of the quarter-finals.

4. Nikola Mektic and Mate Pavic (Eliminated)

The Croatian duo crashed out of the Monte Carlo Masters after failing to beat Taylor Fritz and Holger Rune. Mektic and Pavic were surprised by the great coordinated play of their opponents. After losing 6-3 6-4, the Croatian duo bowed out without even winning a match at the Monte Carlo Doubles.

5. Andrey Rublev and Karen Khachanov (Eliminated)

After winning in the first round against a tough duo of Jamie Murray and Michael Venus, Khachanov and Rublev generated great expectations but their adventure was halted by the number one seeds in this tournament, Koolhof, and Skupski. The duo can be satisfied as they took this match to the limit, which was defined in an intense third set 6-7 6-3 14-12.

6. Lloyd Glasspool and Harri Heliovaara (Eliminated)

Despite the top seeds, Glasspool and Heliovaara did not qualify directly for the second round like other top seeds. However, the British-Finnish duo got through the first round without any problems, although in the second round they had some problems overcoming the Argentinean duo of Maximo Gonzales and Andres Molteni, as after a 5-7 and 6-4 in the first 2 sets, the duel was defined in a super tie break that favoured the Europeans 10-8.

7. Jamie Murray and Michael Venus (Eliminated)

Experience often pays off, which is why many expected Murray and Venus to advance a few rounds and at least fly into the top 4 of the Monte Carlo Doubles. Their first duel came against two players who are just coming together to evaluate their performance as a team, Karen Khachanov and Andrey Ruble. The British-Australian duo lost, but what was most impressive was that they were outplayed in two sets 7-5 6-4.

8. Marcel Granollers and Horacio Zeballos (Eliminated)

Granollers and Zeballos lost to Diego Schwartzman and Jannick Sinner and were unable to turn around a scoreline that started adversely. In the first set, they went down 6-3, after allowing their opponents to convert a couple of breakpoints. In the second set it looked like Granollers and Zeballos would have a convincing comeback as they won 1-6, but in the third set their opponents made an extra effort to take the victory 11-9. They were the only top seeds to bow out in the first round.
