Juan Sebastián Cabal and Robert Farah were consecrated ATP 500 champions in Dubai and this is great news for Latin America.
The Colombian pride, as No. 1 in the world, beat Nikola Mektic and Mate Pavic 7-6 (0) and 7-6 (4) in the capital of the United Arab Emirates United in two tiebreaks that were easier than it was to get to the tiebreaker proper.
In this way they achieved the 17th title by forming a duo and cut the streak of a year and a half without a cup, just after the second Grand Slam conquered, at the US Open 2019.
It was the second final of the year for the South Americans after reaching the definition in Melbourne I, in the previous one of the Australian Open. On that occasion, Cabal-Farah lost to the British couple Jamie Murray and the Brazilian Bruno Soares.
