They suffered a lot, but they were able to celebrate. Colombians Juan Sebastián Cabal and Robert Farah, the No. 1 duo in the world, won a victory over Georgian Nikoloz Basilashvili and German Andre Begemann by 6-7 (5), 7-6 (6) and 6-4 in the first round of the Australian Open.
The colombian power, N ° 1 couple in the world, had to fight much more than they had thought since in the first two sets everything was very even and both had to be defined in tiebreak. Even Cabal and Farah had to lift match points against them in the second set.
The Colombian couple, owners of two Grand Slam couples, with a Wimbledon title and another at the US Open, suffered too much at the start on the hard courts of Melbourne Park. Their intention is to improve the level to try to continue making their way in this first Major of 2021.
Already in the third set, with much more confidence for the Latinos, they were able to make us feel the rigor of facing the best of the circuit and the rivals could not make their way into the match. His next opponent will come out of the confrontation between Caruso / Ruuosuvuori and Bublik / Golubev.
