Fifth seeds Gonzalez/Roger-Vasselin also advance

Can Ivan Dodig and Austin Krajicek continue their standout season by capturing a second major team title?

The Croatian-American pair made a winning start at Wimbledon, where they defeated Indians N.Sriram Balaji and Jeevan Nedunchezhiyan 7-6(5), 6-4 in the first round on Saturday. Second seeds Dodig and Krajicek, who won 84 per cent of their first-serve points to advance, will meet Robert Galloway and Lloyd Harris or Marcos Giron and Botic van de Zandschulp in the second round.

Dodig and Krajicek have earned four titles this season, including last month at Roland Garros. They maintained their form to then win their first grass-court team title at The Queen’s Club and were finalists at the ATP 250 event in Eastbourne, where their 13-match winning streak was halted.

In other men’s doubles action, fifth seeds Edouard Roger-Vasselin and Santiago Gonzalez rallied to beat Frenchmen Gregoire Barrere and Quentin Halys 3-6, 6-3, 7-6(10-5). The French-Mexican team will next face British wild cards Toby Samuel and Connor Thomson.
