Perfection! Pavic/Marach Take Home Another Title

Marach/Pavic beat Max Mirnyi and Philipp Oswald 6-4, 5-7, 10-7 on Saturday at the ASB Classic in Auckland for their second title of the year. In week one, Marach/Pavic celebrated won the doubles crown at the Qatar ExxonMobil Open in Doha.
“We have a lot of confidence, played two good weeks. Now it's time to recover and get sharp for Melbourne,” Marach said.
The champions saved seven of nine break points in the 90-minute contest.
“It was not an easy match today especially against Max. He has a lot of experience, and he played a good match. But I think it just helped us a little bit that we got a little edge in the beginning of the [Match] Tie-break,” Pavic said.
