Daniell and Rai lose respective title deciders

Saturday, 26 June 2021

Marcus Daniell and his Austrian partner Philipp Oswald will head to Wimbledon after a disappointing defeat in their semi final at the ATP 250 tournament in Majorca.

The match was effectively a final with the winners receiving a walkover win in the title decider.

Daniell and Oswald have lost 6-1 7-5 to Maximo Gonzalez and Simone Bolelli in one hour and eight minutes. The fourth seeds were the dominant pair throughout and it started with their serving where they had a high first serve percentage, 79% compared to 62 % for Daniell and Oswald.

Meanwhile Ajeet Rai and Benjamin Winter Lopez have lost their doubles final at the ITF tournament in Monastir 7-6 (1) 6-3 against Julian Cash and Mark Whitehouse in 1 hour 19.
