It was 6-0 and 7-5 after 1 hour and 11 minutes of tennis.
Last week wrote Mertens and Schuurs still the dubbeltoernooi in the Chinese Wuhan (hard/2.746.000 dollar) on their name. That victory earned the duo a ticket for the WTA Finals at the end of October in Singapore, where eight of the best tandems of the season will be represented.
