Hunter-Mertens win Women Doubles’ title

The pair defeated WTA Race n°1 Pegula-Gauff in the final in front of a packed Pietrangeli.

Storm Hunter and Elise Mertens are the winners of the 2023 edition of the Internazionali BNL d’Italia women’s doubles. The duo played a superb final to come on top of the all-American duo made of Jessica Pegula and Coco Gauff.

The winning pair started on the front foot, but they got broken back by the Americans. The two did not give up and managed to break again in the 9th game and finally close the first set 6-4.

In the second set, the Americans showed why they are the current leaders of the WTA Race to the finals in doubles and started off with great tennis. From 4-1 up, however, the momentum swinged in favour of the Belgian-Aussie duo who won 5 consecutive games to lift the trophy.

In front of a full stadium, as the match was moved to the Pietrangeli due to the rain delays, Hunter-Mertens won the biggest title in their career together as they started pairing this year on all major tournaments.
