Lewes, Delaware - May 8, 2022 - The North American duo of Gabriela Dabrowski and Guiliana Olmos captured their first team win and first WTA 1000 title on Saturday with a three-set victory at the Madrid Open.
After winning tie-breakers in the first and deciding third sets, No. 2-seeded Canada’s Dabrowski, 30, and Mexico’s Giuliana Olmos, 29, bested No. 3-seed Demi Schuurs, 28, of the Netherlands, and American Desirae Krawcyk, 28, 7-6(1), 5-7, 10-7.
The Madrid crown is Dabrowski’s 11th overall and Olmos’ fourth. Following the win in Spain, Dabrowski’s WTA doubles ranking increased from No. 9 to No. 8, while Olmos’ ranking jumped nine spots from No. 20 to No. 11. The pair returns to action this week in Rome at the WTA 1000 Internazionali BNL d'Italia.
The duo is coached by Dr. Dave Marshall. In addition to Dabrowski and Olmos, the Lewes, Del.-based coach is currently working with four ATP players:
