Nathaniel Lammons and Jackson Withrow continued their push for a place at the Nitto ATP Finals on Sunday when they clinched the Infosys Hall of Fame Open doubles title.
The top seeds battled past two-time defending champion William Blumberg and his partner, Max Purcell, 6-3, 5-7, 10-5 for the Newport trophy. The home favourites saved 12 of the 13 break points they faced to triumph after one hour and 34 minutes.
Lammons and Withrow were clutch under pressure throughout the week, winning all four of their matches in a Match Tie-break. In the championship clash Match Tie-break, they landed seven of their eight first serves and won all seven of those points.
The Americans are now ninth in the Pepperstone ATP Live Doubles Teams Rankings and just 68 points behind eighth place. Lammons and Withrow are trying to qualify for the Nitto ATP Finals for the first time.
Blumberg won his home tournament with Jack Sock in 2021 and Steve Johnson in 2022, but fell just short of a third consecutive crown in Rhode Island. Blumberg and 2022 Wimbledon doubles champion Purcell (w/ Matthew Ebden) were competing together for the first time.
