Not a lot of press floating around about the doubles match, but I dug up a few articles/blog posts.
“I would like to thank Rafa for giving me the opportunity to play with him and win my first ATP title,” said Lopez.While it was Nadal’s eighth final and his fifth title, for Lopez it was his second ATP World Tour final after finishing runner-up with Feliciano Lopez at Valencia in 2004.
Nadal added, “It was disappointing to lose in the singles yesterday so I feel a bit better having won the doubles. Daniel and Nenad are the best team in the world and they were tough to beat today.”
It’s probably not the title Rafael Nadal envisioned when he arrived at the Qatar ExxonMobil Open, but he’ll surely take it.
And to add to the mayhem, a cat ran out on the court. Really.
