Oct. 16, 2007 - The Chilean-Brazilian duo of Fernando Gonzalez and Andre Sa made their partnership debut with a 6-7(6), 6-3, 11-9 (Match TB) victory over Spaniards Feliciano Lopez and Rafael Nadal on Tuesday at the Mutua Madrilena Masters Madrid.
Gonzalez and Sa saved all four break point chances faced in the first set and denied the Spaniard any further opportunities, dropping just three points on serve in the second set. They pulled through in the Match Tie-break to close out the win in one hour and 38 minutes.
Lopez and Nadal, playing in their 13th tournament together, fall to a 10-11 record as a duo. They made their debut with a first round loss in 2003 at Barcelona, and two years later at the same event reached their team's only doubles final (l. to Paes-Zimonjic). The Spaniards were looking for their first win of 2007 after teaming up to opening round losses at Indian Wells and Queen's Club.
Gonzalez and Sa next face fourth seeds Jonas Bjorkman and Max Mirnyi, who are coming off of the title win in Stockholm. Bjorkman and Mirnyi reached the Madrid semifinals last year.
