Sander Gillé and Joran Vliegen win in Monte-Carlo and claim their first Masters 1,000

Melo and Zverev broke at 5-5 in the first set. In the next game, Gillé and Vliegen had two break points, but their opponents converted their first set point.

The Belgian duo started the second set well with a break in the second game. Gillé and Vliegen missed three set points at 5-2 and another set point in the next game before returning to one set all.

Gillé and Vliegen quickly took off in the super decisive game, leading 5/2 then 7/3. At 9/4, they missed a first title point. The second was the right one and the two Belgians could celebrate the most important title of their career.

Gillé, 33, and Vliegen, 30, now have eight titles on the ATP circuit. This is their first coronation in a Masters 1,000, for their first final in a tournament of this level located just below the Grand Slams. Before that, they won in Bastad, Gstaad and Zhuhai in 2019, in Nur-Sultan in 2020, in Singapore in 2021 and in Estoril and Pune last year. They have also been beaten five times in the final, including last year at Roland Garros for their first Grand Slam final.
