Marach qualifies for ATP Masters

By Thomas Hochwarter

Austrian tennis ace Oliver Marach has reached a new high point of his career as the doubles specialist has qualified for the ATP Masters Cup.

It emerged today (Tues) that the 29-year-old Styrian and his Polish partner Lukasz Kubot, 27, will compete at the London event from 22 November as the team cannot drop from the top eight of the ATP doubles rankings before the tournament takes place.

Marach is the second Austrian doubles player after Vorarlberg-based Julian Knowle to compete in a Doubles Masters. Knowle accomplished that two years ago when he played with Swede Simon Aspelin. Former ATP number one player Thomas Muster is the only Austrian player to have played in a Singles Masters event.

Marach and Kubot have won three tournaments this year, including Viennas BA TennisTrophy that took place earlier this month.
