Spain will go with two high-level couples to fight for gold in the men’s doubles tournament at the Paris Olympic Games. AS learned that the second Spanish couple for the Olympic event will be Marcel Granollers and Pablo Carreño, ruling out Alejandro Davidovich, after the first Spanish duo formed by Rafa Nadal and Carlos Alcaraz was confirmed last Wednesday.

Granollers, one of the most proven doubles players on the circuit and who rose to number one in the ranking along with Horacio Zeballos after the last Mutua Madrid Open (right now he occupies second position in the ranking), will form a couple with Carreño almost three years later from the last time they both played together in the doubles of the Davis Cup group stage tie against Ecuador, defeating Gonzalo Escobar and Diego Hidalgo 6-4, 6-7 (5) and 7-6 (2).

Granollers and Carreño also played together in the 2021 ATP Cup, where they beat the Australian duo formed by John Peers and Luke Saville 6-4 and 7-5 but they retired against the Greeks Markos Kalovelonis and Stefanos Tsitsipas after sealing their ticket to the semifinals and withdrew before their match against the Italians Simone Bolelli and Andrea Vavassori in the semifinals of the tournament after Spain lost both singles matches and was eliminated of the tournament. Before, they also formed a pair in the Moscow Tournament in 2016 and in the Umag Tournament in 2015.
