DOUBLES FINAL REVIEW ELGIN/ISTOMIN WIN FIRST TITLE
    Mikhail Elgin and Denis Istomin won their first ATP World Tour team title as they defeated British brothers Ken Skupski and Neal Skupski.
    World No. 77 Elgin was contesting his second ATP World Tour final, having finished runner-up at the St. Petersburg Open two years ago with Alexander Kudryavtsev.
    The 27-year-old Istomin won his first doubles title at the third attempt, having lost out in the 2012 China Open final (w/ Berlocq) and just last month in St. Petersburg (w/ Inglot).

WHAT THE PLAYERS SAID

Elgin
: "We will celebrate in different parts of the world. Denis will go to Basel and I will go to Kazan to play a challenger. If we have internet on the plane, well celebrate via Whatsapp. I think [the Skupskis] played well and they have a future as a team."

Istomin: "We are happy to win. We have been playing for almost two years. We've played semi-finals. Its our first final and we won. Its our first win at such a big event. Maybe we have more wins to come. We won in Moscow, its nice."
