The Kiwi doubles pairing of Marcus Daniell and Artem Sitak have won their second title in three weeks with a victory in the US$50,000 Challenger at San Luis Potosi, Mexico.

They beat Santiago Gonzalez (Mexico) and Croat, Mate Pavic 6-3 7-6(3) in the final - the same pair they beat to win the Puebla Challenger two weeks earlier.

"It's great to get a win on clay," said Sitak after their victory.

"We played better and better throughout the tournament and the final was a high level of tennis. We want to keep up momentum when we play in Leon next week,"

Daniell and Sitak have now had a run of a title, semifinals and title in their past three tournaments in Mexico. Their next tournament is the US$75,000 Challenger in Leon, Mexico.
