Golubev and Nedovjesov justified their first-seed role by winning the Split Open with a victory in the final against Szymon Walkow and Jan Zielinski from Poland 7:5, 6:7 (5), 10-5. In a dramatic and quality clash, the nuances really decided the result, and in the end, a series of three consecutive points for the Kazakhstani pair’s 6-3 lead in the super tie break was crucial.


It was close in the first two sets, especially in the second when the Kazakh side failed to realize as many as seven break opportunities and the Polish team three. In the 13th game, Walkow and Zielinski won the third set, but the winning trophy still went to favored Golubev and Nedovjesov. This is the sixth joint title in the Challengers for the Kazakhstani pair. They will share 2,670 euros and 80 points, while the finalists will receive 1,550 euros and 48 points.


Both pairs stay in Split for the new Challenger next week – Golubev and Nedovjesov are the second seed in the draw and start against the Croatian team Borna Gojo – Nino Serdarušić, while Walkow and Zielinski go against the fourth seed Purava Raju and Tristan-Samuel Weissborn.
