Challenger with prize money 42 500 EUR plus hospitality was played from 18th until 24th April on clay courts in Torino, Italy. Our doubles pair from the academy played in the final on Saturday against pair from Australia/Poland Junaid/Kowalczyk and they won in dramatic three sets 4-6, 7-6(3), 12-10. "Final was very difficult. Our opponents played very well. They were better for set and a half. It was important we kept on going and we managed to take the match in our favour as the match progressed.  We had slight advantage at the end. We are enjoying difficult moments with Hans and we are mostly successful. Level of doubles was great today," said Andrej Martin for www.empire-tennis-acadmy.com.
