Artem Sitak and his Dutch partner Wesley Koolhof have fallen just short of winning their first ATP doubles title together.

Sitak and Koolhof have been beaten 6-4, 4-6, 10-6 in the final of the New York Open by 2nd seeds Belarussian Max Mirnyi and Austrian Philip Oswald.

It was a case of missed opportunities for Sitak and Koolhof who have now lost three ATP finals as a team after joining forces after Wimbledon last year. Sitak was chasing his fourth ATP title.

Sitak and Koolhof managed to convert just one of eight break point opportunities in the match which lasted 1 hr 28.

After losing a tight opening set Sitak and Koolhof rallied in the second with an early break and then served strongly to force a deciding match tie break.

But it proved a step too far for the unseeded pairing as Mirnyi and Oswald quickly took control to capture the title.

Despite the loss the 32 year old Kiwi is likely to improve from his current ranking of 59 to just outside the top 50.

Sitak and Koolhof will now head to Delray Beach for for this week's ATP tournament. They will play American Scott Lipsky and Indian Divij Sharan in the first round.

Michael Venus ranked 17th and his South African doubles partner Raven Klaasen are top seeds for the ATP250 tournament in Marseille. They will face the Russian pair of Danil Medvedev and Mikhail Elgin in the first round.

Marcus Daniell and his British partner Dominic Inglot are the 4th seeds and have been drawn against Germany's Maximillian Marterer and Portugal's Joao Sousa in the first round.

Sitak to chase a 4th ATP doubles title

New Zealand’s Artem Sitak and his Dutch partner Wesley Koolhof have surged into the doubles final at the ATP 250 tournament, the New York Open.

Sitak and Koolhof have beaten Moldovan Radu Albot and Georgia’s Nicoloz Basilashvili 6-4 6-3 in their semi-final.

“The key was to stay really focused and do the basics well because they are really good singles players and hit well from the back of the court.” Sitak said.

Sitak and Koolhof made a sluggish start as their opponents broke in the 3rd game to take early control of the first set.

But the Dutch Kiwi combination had several opportunities to break back and did so in the 8th game. They broke again in the 10th game to take the first set in 33 minutes.

Sitak and Koolhof served superbly in the second set and didn’t face a single break point against their serve.
They broke In the 8th game and then served out the set and the match in 1hr 2.

“We attacked well and held serve well and protected our first volleys. Wes returned well in the end and basically broke them by himself in the second set.”

Sitak and Koolhof have only been playing together since after Wimbledon last year but are now into their third ATP final as a team. They lost their previous two finals last year but will fancy their chances against the 2nd seeds Max Mirnyi of Belarus and Philip Oswald of Austria.

“They are a very good team and made the final in Auckland at the start of the season. But we beat them 10-7 in the third in a very tough match in Metz last year.” Sitak said.

Victory in the final will lift Sitak back into the top 50 in the rankings and it would be the 32 year old’s 4th ATP doubles title.
