ARGENTINA DEFEATS NEW ZEALAND

First pair to move into TEB BNP Paribas Istanbul Open doubles final is Argentina’s Andres Molteni and Diego Schwartzman.

Argentines Andres Molteni/Diego Schwartzman are the first team to reach TEB BNP Paribas Istanbul Open doubles final. Winner of three Futures titles together, Molteni/Schwartzman were victorious over New Zealanders Marcus Daniell/Artem Sitak 6-4, 1-6, 10/6.
