Romanian-Dutch pair made up by Horia Tecau/Jean-Julien Rojer has won the title in the doubles event in ATP Masters 1,000 tournament in Madrid on Sunday, after defeating in the final Diego Schwartzman (Argentina)/Dominic Thiem (Austria) 6-4, 6-3.

Tecau and Rojer have won in one hour and 11 minutes, the first title in 2019.

Tecau and Rojer, pair which won the Madrid Open in 2016, will collect EUR 356,540 and 1,000 ATP points in the doubles event.

Tecau has played in Madrid his 56th doubles final of his career.

“It’s a great feeling to win another title here. We prepared well this week. We felt like we had a good level of tennis but of course when you start playing the matches, that’s the real test,” Tecau said. “We had a big test in the first round against the Bryan Brothers, who are always a tough team to compete against. We managed to save two match points and go through to the next round and that gave us a lot of confidence that we kept riding with,” he added, according to atptour.com.
