• 1 MINUTE READ
Britain's Lloyd Glasspool and Dutch star Jean-Julien Rojer tasted silverware on their opening event of the season, winning the Brisbane International men's doubles title.
Second seeds Glasspool and Rojer lifted the trophy in only their first tournament together ahead of the Australian Open later this month.
Having defeated Yuki Bhambri and Robin Haase 11-9 in a match tie-break to come through their semi-final, the British, Dutch duo saved two match points to claim a 7-6(3), 5-7, 12-10 victory against top seeds Kevin Krawietz and Tim Puetz in the final.
The win marks Glasspool's fourth career ATP title, coming almost exactly a year to the day since his last tour trophy in Adelaide. The 30-year-old now has a 4-8 record in ATP Tour finals.
Glasspool and Rojer now move on to Adelaide, where the Brit will be looking to defend his title coming in as the seventh seed.
