The German doubles team of Kevin Krawietz and Andreas Mies celebrated their second tournament win in a row three weeks before the start of the French Open.

The duo won the final in the Isar metropolis on Sunday against Brazilian Rafael Matos and Spaniard David Vega Hernandez 4:6, 6:4, 10:7. A week ago, the Germans had secured their first tournament victory in Barcelona since their joint comeback at the beginning of the year.

“To win the first title on German soil is very special,” said Mies and joked: “Thanks also to the staff who always gave us a few extra balls for practice. As a German pairing, you do have a few advantages here.”

Last season, the pairing was unable to play together for several months due to a knee injury suffered by Mies. At the Grand Slam in Paris (22 May to 5 June), which the Germans have already won twice together, they are among the title contenders.
