Andrej Martin and Podlipnik played against Paes in the doubles final in Italy

Andrej Martin, Hans Podlipnik, Biella

EMPIRE Tennis Academy player Andrej Martin is doing well not only in singles but also enjoyed good form in doubles. In Italian Biella, he reached the final together with Hans Podlipnik

ATP Challenger in Biella with total prize money of 85 000 euros, was played on clay. Andrej Martin with Hans Podlipnik played in the final against Begemann-Paes from Germany and India. Paes is considered to be one of the best doubles players. Our pair lost in two sets 4-6, 4-6. 
"Today’s final was very difficult, considering it was a challenger final. Both Paes and Begemann are top doubles players. It was a great challenge on the other hand. I was left with little energy after difficult two weeks behind me. I could not give it more. We played good match and we could have won but we lost one break in each set. Leander is a great man, very kind and charismatic," said Andrej Martin after the final for www.empire-tennis-academy.com. 
Andrej Martin played singles in Biella, did not defend his last year’s title and lost in the quarterfinal.
