Kubot/Marrero Win Acapulco Title On Team Debut
by ATP Staff | 02.03.2013
Second seeds Lukasz Kubot and David Marrero triumphed on their team debut at the Abierto Mexicano Telcel on Saturday, easing past Simone Bolelli and Fabio Fognini 7-5, 6-2. Kubot and Marrero capitalised on five of their seven break points to clinch the win 70 minutes.
“We decided to play together at the last minute. We were supposed to play with different partners, but they got injured,” Kubot said. “I think we did great. Every match, we played much better. We played good tennis today, especially in the second set.”
Both Kubot and Marrero celebrated their second title in Acapulco. Kubot lifted the trophy in 2010 with Oliver Marach, while Marrero successfully defended the crown, having been victorious with Fernando Verdasco last year. The two won 500 Emirates ATP Rankings points and share $86,200.
