De Jong J./Haase R. - Elgin M./Zimonjic N.
The Dutch doubles, Jesper De Jong and Robin Haase, will play against Mikhail Elgin and Nenad Zimonjic in the first round of the challenger in Nur-Sultan. This will be the first match between these two doubles because both doubles play together for the first time in a tournament.
Elgin and Zimonjic are experienced doubles players but for a long time they did not achieved a bigger doubles result, they did not come into this tournament in any better shape than the Dutch doubles, so it will not be a surprise if the two make more mistakes in this match.
Haase is also an experienced doubles player, with good doubles results. Haase also played a single before this match, lost without a problem 2-0, De Jong won without a major problem in a single 2-0 before this match, so surely they will both be fully prepared for this match and will probably retain more of their own service games or service in this match.
