Robert Farah: Winning US Open on Arthur Ashe Stadium was my biggest dream

Colombian doubles specialist Robert Farah has fulfilled his biggest dream on Friday after winning the 2019 US Open men's doubles title alongside his fellow compatriot Juan Sebastian Cabal. Cabal and Farah, seeded at No.

1, handed a straight-set defeat to No. 8 seeds Marcel Granollers and Horacio Zeballos 6-4 7-5 in the US Open final to win back-to-back Grand Slam titles. The final appeared to be set to be decided in a decider but the top seeds from Colombia won four games in a row to overturn a 5-3 second set deficit and escape with a straight-set win.

"It was my biggest dream to win the US Open here on this huge stadium so it cannot get more real than this. It cannot get more amazing than this," Farah insisted after the final, per the ATP website. Granollers and Zeballos, who won the Montreal Masters doubles title last month, were playing together just for the second time in their careers.

"Horacio and Marcel are very good friends of ours,” Farah added. "To go and win Montreal and then come here and make the final shows that they are playing at a great level”.
