    No. 1 seeds Santiago Gonzalez of Mexico and Andres Molteni of Argentina edged No. 2 seeds Andre Goransson (University of California, Berkeley, 2014-17) of Sweden and Nathaniel Lammons of Dallas 2-6, 6-2 [15-13] today in the final of the €132,280 ($155,700) Szczecin (Poland) Open on clay.
   Gonzalez and Molteni, who were coming off an appearance in the U.S. Open round of 16, survived three championship points and converted their third one when a Goransson overhead sailed long.
   Goransson, a Wimbledon quarterfinalist in July with Casper Ruud of Norway, fell to 2-3 in doubles finals this year. He has lost his last three with three different partners.
   Goransson will improve three places to No. 66 in the doubles rankings, one spot off his career high last month.
