Cepero and Chozas were one of four duos to survive qualifying between Saturday and Monday on the Spanish southeast coast, beating Mario Ortega and Carlos Marti 7-5 6-3 in the final.

Javi Valdes and 'Joseda' Sanchez would make it into the main draw too, the Chilean-Spanish partnership dispatching young David Gala and Dani Santigosa 6-3 and 6-1.

After being handed a wild card earlier in the year, Ben Tison and Victor Mena came back together for the Malaga Open, where they would make the main draw the hard way. Defeating Ferran Insa and Pol Hernandez 6-4 7-5, Mena makes just his third main draw ever, and the French Tison his sixth.

Neither player has ever advanced from there, and they will have to defeat number ones Agustin Tapia and Arturo Coello on Wednesday to change that statistic.

Finally, Adrian Marques and Mario Huete overcame the deficit of a set to beat Alvaro and Pedro Melendez 5-7 6-3 7-5 for the last ticket to the main draw.
