Bopanna/Shapovalov Edge Past 2015 Rotterdam Champions
Klaasen/Marach also advance at ATP 500-level tournament
Rohan Bopanna and Denis Shapovalov edged their way into the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament semi-finals on Thursday with a 6-2, 3-6, 10-7 victory over fourth seeds and 2015 champions Jean-Julien Rojer and Horia Tecau in 74 minutes. Bopanna and Shapovalov, who reached their first ATP Tour final in June last year at the MercedesCup in Stuttgart (l. to Peers/Soares), await the winners of Henri Kontinen and Jan-Lennard Struff versus Jamie Murray and Ken Skupski.
Elsewhere, Raven Klaasen and Oliver Marach also came through a tight encounter, 6-4, 6-7(5), 10-8, over Felix Auger-Aliassime and Hubert Hurkacz in one hour and 43 minutes. They now challenge second seeds and 2018 champions Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Nicolas Mahut, who advanced to the semi-finals when Fabio Fognini, partnering Robin Haase, pulled out with a left leg injury.
