Rohan Bopanna beats Leander Paes to reach doubles final in Dubai

Dubai: India’s Rohan Bopanna and his Polish partner Marcin Matkowski reached the men’s doubles finals of the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships after beating Leander Paes and Guillermo Garcia-Lopez in three sets here yesterday. The unseeded Indo-Polish pair knocked out the Indo-Spanish combination 6-3, 3-6, 10-6 in the semi-finals of the hard court tournament.

This is the second best performance of the season for Bopanna, who is playing with his fourth different partner of the season. He had won the season-opening Chennai Open with compatriot Jeevan Nedunchezhiyan.

In the final, Bopanna and Matkowski will clash with the winner of the second semi-final between top seeded duo of Henri Kontinenand John Peers, and fourth seeds Rojer Jean-Julien and Tecau Horia.
