Wesley Koolhof and Kevin Krawietz captured their first ATP Tour team title on Sunday at the BMW Open in Munich.

The top-seeded Dutch-German team got off to a strong start in the Match Tie-break en route to a 4-6, 6-4, 10-5 victory over third-seeded Belgians Sander Gille and Joran Vliegen in 87 minutes. The final was interrupted for 35 minutes by rain at 1-1 in the second set.

Koolhof, Krawietz

Koolhof, 32, captured the seventh ATP Tour title of his career, while 29-year-old Krawietz, who normally partners fellow German Andreas Mies, earned his fifth doubles crown.

Gille and Vliegen, who lost one set en route to the ATP 250 tournament final, picked up the Singapore Tennis Open trophy (d. Ebden/Smith) in February. They are now 5-2 in ATP Tour team finals.
