Hans Podlipnik-Castillo and Andrei Vasilevski kept fighting hard and were very close to claiming the the ATP Kitzbühel doubles title when playing in the finals against the combination Pablo CUEVAS of Uruguay / Guillermo DURAN of Argentina. They saved eight out of nine break points they faced and also managed to come back from 4:7 deficit in a match tie-break but when leading 10:9 they did not convert a match point they had and eventually lost the match to their opponents. Runners up will share 13 730 € and 150 points into the ATP rankings.
