Rajeev Brings More Honor to CRC:  ATP #1 Doubles Team (4/17/2022)

2022 Monte Carlo Masters Men’s Doubles Champs
Joe Salisbury (l) and Rajeev Ram (r)

On April 17, 2022, Rajeev Ram (USA/CRC member) and Joe Salisbury (UK) won the Rolex Monte Carlo Masters men’s doubles championship making them the #1 men’s doubles team in the world. They defeated Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Rarah 6-4, 3-6, 10-7. This is the duo’s second ATP Masters 1000 title.

“It’s unbelievable,” said Salisbury in the pair’s on-court interview. “I’m so happy right now. It’s a first title on clay together, on a surface that we always thought was a weaker one for us. [We have] not done too well here before, but we’ve been working really hard, and we knew we could play well. [I am] just so happy that it’s come together and to get the win here.”

“I got the best player in the world on my team, that helps!” added Ram when asked about the secrets to the pair’s success. “It’s our fourth year together, we have great chemistry, we work really well together on and off the court. I think it shows in matches like this, we can piece together a good effort and give ourselves a competitive chance.”

They had already captured two Grand Slam titles—2020 Australian Open and 2021 US Open.
