It might have been just their second tour-level event together, and their first in more than three years, but Austin Krajicek and Rajeev Ram did not show any rust in Moscow. Instead, the Americans defeated defending champions Max Mirnyi and Philipp Oswald 7-6(4), 6-4 on Sunday to triumph at the VTB Kremlin Cup, clinching their first title as a team.

The victory is a special one for Krajicek, who earns his maiden ATP World Tour crown. The 28-year-old had fallen short in two previous tour-level finals this year, and three overall. But he joined Ram to defeat the third seeds in 77 minutes, despite winning one less point than their opponents in the match.

While it is Krajicek’s first title, Ram now owns 16 tour-level doubles crowns, and this is his second of the season. Ram won the BMW Open by FWU in Munich. Krajicek and Ram earn 250 ATP Doubles Ranking points and split $46,420.

Mirnyi entered the match undefeated in five previous Moscow doubles finals with five different partners, including Roger Federer in 2002. Mirnyi and Oswald claimed their first trophy together at the event last season, and have won twice since, at the ATP World Tour 250-level events in New York and Houston. They earn a share of $24,400 and 150 points each.
