The successful German tennis doubles Kevin Krawietz and Andreas Mies will go their separate ways in the future.
One day after the lost semi-finals at the Masters tournament in Paris and the associated missing of the ATP finals in Turin, 32-year-old Mies and his partner, who was two years younger, announced their separation on Sunday. "After 4 unforgettable years, the time has come to start a new chapter," Mies wrote on Instagram. In the new year he will start in Australia with John Peers (Australia), Krawietz has decided to continue on this path with Tim Pütz (Frankfurt/Main).
This year, the doubles were eliminated early in the Grand Slam tournaments in Australia (round of 16), the French Open (1st round) and the US Open (2nd round) and had only reached the quarterfinals in Wimbledon. At the Davis Cup, Mies played with Pütz and played a key role in progressing.
"We helped each other to achieve (almost) all dreams and goals, celebrating victories together and dealing with defeats," Mies wrote. Since the first joint tournament in 2017, "a successful partnership and even more important: an intimate friendship" has emerged. "What we have achieved together, no one can take away from us." And Krawietz said goodbye: "Good luck bro in your next season and I hope not too many encounters, if only in the final."
