Stefanos Tsitsipas and Petros Tsitsipas partnership finally pays off with maiden doubles title at 2023 European Open Antwerp

Stefanos Tsitsipas has finally delivered in his doubles partnership with brother Petros Tsitsipas with the duo winning at European Open Antwerp on Sunday.

A victory of 6-7(5) 6-4 10-8 over the team of Ariel Behar and Adam Pavlasek. They turned the match around like in the semi-finals after dropping the opening set.

It has been an interesting story for the pair with brother Petros who is a hitting partner also for the family unit that includes father Apostolos and of course Paula Badosa who was their supporting Stefanos often gaining wildcards seemingly due to his brother.

Both have been given many wildcards together due to the success of the Greek, but have rarely delivered until now. This week has seen them take in multiple tricky match-ups and they have come out on top.

Petros Tsitsipas who mainly plays doubles improves to a new career of 81 as a result of this title. It also acts to soften the blow for Tsitsipas who lost to Arthur Fils yesterday who will play in the singles final on Sunday evening.

So despite not leaving with the main title, he leaves with some silverware and an important step for the team who have previously had some scrutiny for taking wildcards.
