Paes-Raven Klaasen win Heineken Open title

India’s Leander Paes and his South African partner Raven Klaasen, seeded fourth, beat Dominic Inglot and Florin Mergea to win the Heineken Open men’s doubles title on Saturday. They beat the British-Romanian pairing 7-6 (1), 6-4 for their first title this year. It was the second consecutive final for Paes and Klassen, after finishing runners-up at the Chennai Open. Stronger service helped the fourth seeds edge their opponents in the first set. Both teams were poor with their breakpoints conversion and failed to grasp their chances and in the end it had to be decided in the tie-break which Paes and Klaasen won.
