French Open 2017: Ryan Harrison and Michael Venus take Grand Slam title
American Ryan Harrison and New Zealander Michael Venus claimed their first grand slam title when they beat Mexican Santiago Gonzalez and American Donald Young 7-6(5) 6-7(4) 6-3 in the French Open men's doubles final on Saturday.
After two fiercely-contested opening sets between the two unseeded pairs, Harrison and Venus broke decisively for 5-3 and held serve to prevail on Court Philippe Chatrier.
It was the pair's first major final, Harrison having never reached the last four in a grand slam while his partner had never even been in a quarter-final.
It is not their first title together, however, as they warmed up with a title in the Estoril tournament last month.
