France’s Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Germany’s Kevin Krawietz became the 2009 Junior Boys’ Doubles Champions after winning a close encounter against the all-French pairing of Julien Obry and Adrien Puget 6-7 (3-7), 6-2, 12-10.

In their semi-finals, each pair had to play a long deciding final set, so it was no surprise that today’s final followed suit. A break each in the first set forced a tiebreak and the craft and touch of the French pair put them in the driving seat as they edged ahead by convincingly winning the tiebreak 7-3.

Losing the set forced Herbert and Krawietz to raise their game and they were too strong for the French boys. The French and German team levelled the match 34 minutes later with two breaks of serve.

The final set was not decided until 86 minutes later as each server was in full flow and the break points were defended well by sublime volleying. Obry and Puget gave their all on their return points and had chances to win the match but were prevented by some fantastic serving and net play by their opponents.

In the twenty-second game of the set, Herbert and Krawietz achieved the breakthrough and could consider themselves slightly fortunate to have scrapped their way through a tough final to become champions.
