Sunday, 21 August 2022

Michael Venus and Tim Puetz have come up just short in the final of the Cincinnati Masters.

The 6th seeds have been beaten 7-6 (4) 7-6 (5) by the top seeds American Rajeev Ram and Britain’s Joe Salisbury with the match taking an hour and 38 minutes. There were no breaks of serve in the match with both teams saving two break points against their serve.

It’s the 7th career title for Ram and Salisbury as a team.

Venus and Puetz had received a walkover into the final when Stefanos Tsitsipas and Holger Rune withdrew from their semi-final after Tsitsipas played late into the night in his singles semi and withdrew from the doubles.
