On Saturday, September 3rd, he played for the title together with Czech Roman Jebavy against Nils Langer and Gerald Melzer. Czech-Slovakian duo won after super tie-break 3-6, 6-1, 10-5. "We laughed with Roman that we either loose in the first round or we win the whole tournament," said Andrej Martin for www.empire-tennis-academy.com.
"We both play well now and I am happy we also proved it here in Italy. Roman is a very funny guy, so it is always great, if we can win the title and have some fun. I hope this title can help me in singles as well. Next week I play Challenger in Sevilla, Spain." It is third title for Martin with Jebavy, but before those were Futures in 2012 in Croatia and in 2009 in Czech Republic. Martin owns 11 challenger titles in doubles.
