Cabal/Farah made history this season at Wimbledon by becoming the first Colombians to win a Grand Slam men’s doubles championship title. They have excelled on all surface this season, also prevailing on grass at the Nature Valley International in Eastbourne (d. Gonzalez/Zeballos); on clay at the Internazionali BNL d’Italia in Rome (d. Klaasen/Venus) and the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell. The pair also finished runner-up on hard courts at the Sydney International (l. to Murray/Soares).

This is the third trip to The O2 for Cabal and Farah. They were non-playing alternates in 2016 and reached the semi-finals last year.
