New Zealand tennis players Marcus Daniell and Artem Sitak have won the doubles title at the US75,000 Challenger in Puebla, Mexico.

After a difficult year of results, the pair were keen to get back on to winning form and had to come from a set down to defeat the pair of Mate Pavic (Croatia) and Santiago Gonzalez (Mexico) 3-6 6-2 12-10 for the title.

The victory should give Sitak, ranked at 67, and Daniell, at 90 in the world, a slight boost when rankings next come out.
