The ÖTV duo clinched the double title in Bulgaria in clear and exciting fashion.
Sandro Kopp and Neil Oberleitner recorded their third combined doubles victory after Innsbruck (ITF M15) in July 2022 and Heraklion (Greece, ITF M25) in November 2022 at the ITF M25 clay court tournament in Pazardzhik on Saturday. And in an amazing way. The teams of Tyrol (ATP Doubles 526) and Vienna (ATP Doubles 169) initially qualified for the semi-finals by losing only four and three games in their first two matches, winning 7:5, 2:6 and 10:7 in the deciding match against Local champions Bulgarians Gabriel Dunev (ATP Doubles 986) and Simon Antoni Ivanov (ATP Doubles 772) suffered their only loss of the tournament. In the final, Cobb/Oberleitner made a massive statement: the second-seeded pair of red, white and red beat third-placed Max Hoeks of the Netherlands (ATP doubles 418) and Erik Vanchelboim of Ukraine (ATP doubles 305) in the final. Only 48 minutes Maximum penalty 6:0, 6:0.
How could such a final result come against two opponents who could not be underestimated in any way? Oberleitner tried to explain this to ÖTV, saying: “Sandro and I played very well, and most importantly, we came back. In fact, we did not let anything go wrong, we focused and played hard. I think the Hawks were also a bit tired from one game of “Before. Some things also went our way, and we had a bit of luck on our side as we won some decision points. “For Cope, this is the seventh ITF doubles coup, and for Oberleitner it is the 24th, in addition to two successes at the ITF Challenger tournament Professional tennis. In singles, the two met in the first round – with a score of 6:2, 6:4 with the better ending being the fifth-seeded Cope (ATP 424). The 23-year-old then eliminated Jiri Barnat of the Czech Republic (ATP 601) 6:4, 3:6, 6:3, before eventually losing to second-placed Frenchman Clement Tabor (ATP 264) 0:6, 1.:6 In the quarter-finals, the end came.
