DOUBLES FINAL REVIEW - BERDYCH/HAJEK UPSET TOP SEEDS TO WIN
ē The unseeded Czechs Tomas Berdych and Jan Hajek ousted No. 1 seeds Alexander Peya and Bruno Soares in 71 minutes.
ē This is the second doubles trophy for Berdych, who teamed with Dmitry Tursunov to win the 2008 ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament in Rotterdam. Hajek made his only other appearance in a final, in Munich 2007, with partner Jaroslav Levinsky.

WHAT THE PLAYERS SAID:

Berdych: "It was a really great week. I think we both really enjoyed it. I think for us the priority is still the singles, but itís a great opportunity to win a couple matches, to win the title. Everybody wants to do that, so good start."

Hajek: "I feel very good. Itís my first title. I was in the final once, but we lost. This is something special to stay on court with Tomas because we are very good friends and now we play together. I was looking forward for this week. Now we stay here and we have the title so itís great for me."
