Finland’s Henri Kontinen and John Peers of Australia have agreed to part ways and find new partners for the 2020 season. Kontinen, 29, and 31-year-old Peers had lots off success as pair as they won 13 titles in their four years together.
Kontinen and Peers enjoyed success on the biggest stage, having won the 2017 Australian Open title and back-to-back crowns at the NittoATP Finals in 2016 and 2017. Kontinen and Peers won five titles in their first season as a pair and also captured five titles a year later, before they collected three titles in 2018.
After great first three seasons as a pair, Kontinen and Peers a bit surprisingly failed to win a title this season. Kontinen and Peers had a promising campaign at Melbourne Park in January but fell just short of winning the title as they ended runners-up in the final to Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Nicolas Mahut.
Kontinen and Peers never found their form after losing the Australian Open final as their best result since then was a semifinal finish at the Queen’s Club. Kontinen will be playing alongside three-time doubles champion Jan-Lennard Struff next year.
