Spanish duo Marcel Granollers and Marc Lopez will go into next weekend’s Davis Cup final on a high after winning the doubles title at the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals in London tonight.
Granollers and Lopez beat Britain’s Jonny Marray and Dane Freddie Nielsen in the semi-finals yesterday and they followed it up today with a 7-5 3-6 10-3 victory over Indians Mahesh Bhupathi and Rohan Bopanna.
There was guaranteed to be two new champions and it was the sixth-seeded debutants who prevailed, handing Bhupathi a fifth final defeat at the end-of-season tournament.
Granollers and Lopez will now head to Prague where they will aim to help Spain win a fourth Davis Cup final in five years.
