Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova and Andrey Rublev beat their peers Elena Vesnina and Aslan Karatsev 6-3, 6-7 (5-7) and 13-11 in a thrilling match.

Earlier, Germany’s Alexander Zverev won the gold medal in men’s singles, defeating Russian Olympic Committee representative Karen Kachanov 6-3, 6-1.

Zverev, one of today’s best tennis players, had already eliminated Serbia’s Novak Djokovic, world number one, in the semifinals, and with that defeat, he lost his last chance to add Olympic supremacy to his impressive list of victories.

In addition, the Czech Republic duo of Barbora Krejcikova and Katerina Siniakova won the gold medal in the women’s doubles.

Krejcikova and Siniakova won in straight sets by 7-5 and 6-1 over Switzerland’s Belinda Bencic and Viktoria Golubic, who won the silver medal, in a modality where Brazilians Laura Pigossi and Luisa Stefani got the bronze medal.

The Czech duo achieved an important title in their career, after losing in the final round at this year’s Australian Open to the pairing of Belgian Elise Mertens and Belarusian Aryna Sabalenka.
