Hurkacz and Sinner are at the top of the action and have already reached the quarterfinals

This is not the first time that Hubert Hurkacz and Jannik Sinner have teamed up. In June 2023, they fought together to win the championship in Halle, but did not achieve their goal. Now they’re back competing together – and in the same venue.

Neither the Pole nor the Italians specialize in doubles, so bettors saw the favorites in the pair of competitors: Jackson Withrow – Nathaniel Lamons. The experts were right that the Americans set very difficult conditions for their higher-rated competitors. The first set ended with Hurkacz and Sinner winning 6:4. In the last match, the Polish-Italian duo managed to score a break point, which ultimately led to the victory. The second match was similar, although in reverse. This time, Withrow and Lamons were able to defend their serves and won 7-5 after just one point.

However, the third set brought real emotions. With Hurkacz and Sinner leading 6:5, the opponents were able to make a short break. But the Americans missed their chance. They had two match points, but the Pole and the Italian kept their nerves under control and managed to counter-attack. Then they scored two straight points and needed just one game ball to succeed. Thus, they qualified for the quarter-finals of the tournament in Germany. There they will face Sadio Doumbia and Fabian RuPaul.

The Wrocław resident has had some tough weeks behind him

Meanwhile, his adventure during the Grand Slam tournament ended at the 1/8 Finals stage, where Grigor Dimitrov won confidently 3-0. However, Hurkacz’s behavior during the match caused a huge uproar when he became angry with the referee and suggested replacing him. However, the 27-year-old also competes in the singles game in Halle. On Thursday, he will face James Duckworth in the quarter-final match. Any success in Germany would certainly be a huge boost for the Poles ahead of the next Olympics.
