Huey/Cabal Cruise To Los Cabos Title
Second seeds defeats Galdos/Maytin on Saturday
Juan Sebastian Cabal and Treat Huey raced to the doubles title on Saturday at Abierto Mexicano de Tenis Mifel presentado por Cinemex, with the second seeds requiring just 57 minutes to defeat Sergio Galdos and Roberto Maytin 6-2, 6-3.
"It was a great match and a really good week for us. We played some good matches all week, but I thought today was our best tennis," said Huey. "The city was unbelievable and everyone treated the players so well, so I can't wait to come back next year."
Cabal/Huey remained in control throughout the contest. The only minor blip came when they were unable to serve out the match at 5-2, but they regrouped with their fifth break of the championship in the next game.
"I'm really happy to win the tournament with Treat. It was our first time together and our first win, so it was amazing," said Cabal. "It was an amazing tournament, great sightseeing and on the beach, so it was great to finish the week like this with a title."
Huey picked up his first ATP World Tour doubles title of the season after a runner-up showing this February in Delray Beach with Max Mirnyi. Cabal won Munich and Buenos earlier this year with fellow Colombian Robert Farah. The pair also recorded runner-up showings in Geneva, Budapest and Rio de Janeiro.
Despite the loss, both Galdos and Maytin enjoyed the best week of their careers. They each had only won two ATP World Tour doubles matches outside of Davis Cup coming into Los Cabos.
Cabal/Huey pick up 250 Emirates ATP Doubles Rankings point and split a cheque for $34,520. Galdos/Martin earn 150 Emirates ATP Doubles Rankings points and split a cheque for $18,150.
