The best possible debut: Horacio Zeballos and Marcel Granollers they won at the start of the ATP Finals London. The Argentine and the Spanish beat Bob Bryan in the Group John Peers, from Australia, and Michael Venus, from New Zealand, 7-6 (2), 7-5.
Without a doubt, Zeballos’ absolute debut could not have been more positive on the hard surface and indoors at the O2 Arena in London. Thus, he officially became the fifth Argentine to contest the final ATP Masters in the doubles specialty.
With this victory, Zeballos is the first from his country to win a match in the ATP Finals in 17 years, since they got it, forming a duo, their compatriots Gastón Etlis and Martín Rodríguez in 2003, in Houston.
Zeballos, 35, brings one to Granollers and they both enjoyed the presentation, since they allowed themselves a plus, since they won without losing a set, an aspect that can be key when defining area.
In the same group are the Croatian Mate Pavic and the Brazilian Bruno Soares plus the last pair classified for this great event, the one made up of the Austrian Jurgen Melzer and the Frenchman Edouard Roger-Vasselin, after their time at the ATP 250 in Sofia.
