Fritz/Rune earn opening win in Monte-Carlo


Singles stars Taylor Fritz and Holger Rune earned a first-round doubles win at the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters Monday when they moved past Lloyd Glasspool and Jean-Julien Rojer 6-3, 6-3.

It is the second time Fritz and Rune have teamed in Monte-Carlo after they reached the quarter-finals last year.

Wesley Koolhof and Nikola Mektic started their quest for their fourth trophy of the season with a 7-5, 5-7, 10-7 win against Hugo Nys and Jan Zielinski after two hours. The seventh seeds will next play Fritz and Rune.

Americans Nathaniel Lammons and Jackson Withrow advanced, defeating Jamie Murray and Michael Venus 6-4, 6-4. Lammons and Withrow are chasing their first title of the season together this week.

Maximo Gonzalez and Andres Molteni also won, beating Nicolas Jarry and Lorenzo Musetti 6-4, 6-3. The eighth seeds won a title on clay in Cordoba earlier this year.

Sander Gille and Joran Vliegen moved past Italians Jannik Sinner and Lorenzo Sonego 6-7(3), 7-5, 10-7. Sinner will face Alejandro Davidovich Fokina or Sebastian Korda in his opening-round singles match in Monte-Carlo.
