Lukasz Kubot and Oliver Marach have become the fifth team to qualify for the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals. The Polish-Austrian duo will make its debut at the eight-team season finale, to be staged at The O2 Arena in London from 22-29 November.

Three spots remain to be claimed at this week's BNP Paribas Masters in Paris (Bercy), with five teams still in contention to qualify.

Kubot and Marach opened their season with a run to the Australian Open semi-finals (l. to Bhupathi-Knowles) and the following month reached their second ATP World Tour final on clay at the Abierto Mexicano Telcel (l. to Cermak-Mertinak) in Acapulo.

The duo continued its clay-court success in April by winning its maiden ATP World Tour title at Grand Prix Hassan II (d. Aspelin-Hanley) in Casablanca and followed with a second title a month later at the inaugural Serbia Open 2009 (d. Brunstrom-Rojer).

With the Battle for London intensifying in recent weeks, Kubot and Marach made a big push towards qualification by claiming their third title of the season at the Bank Austria TennisTrophy (d. Knowle-Melzer) in Vienna two weeks ago. They have compiled a 39-19 match record on the season.
