Glasspool/Heliovaara March On In Umag

Kubler/Peers upset Ebden/Purcell in Atlanta

Lloyd Glasspool and Harri Heliovaara continued their productive summer on the European clay as the British-Finnish pairing cruised to the semi-finals at the Plava Laguna Croatia Open Umag on Thursday.

The third seeds broke the serve of wild card pairing Mili Poljicak and Nino Serdarusic twice in each set to clinch a 6-3, 6-3 victory that extended their winning streak to six after they clinched a maiden ATP Tour title in Hamburg last week. Glasspool and Heliovaara will bid to keep that run going at the ATP 250 clay-court event in Croatia in a semi-final showdown against second seeds Rafael Matos and David Vega Hernandez.

Top seeds Simone Bolelli and Fabio Fognini also advanced on Thursday but were made to work hard before they prevailed 7-6, 6-7(6), 10-7 against Antonio Sancic and Franko Skugor. Bolelli and Fognini’s semi-final opponents will be Gstaad champions Tomislav Brkic and Francisco Cabral, who saw off Nathaniel Lammons and Jackson Withrow, 6-4, 7-5.

Kubler/Peers Win All-Aussie Clash
At the Atlanta Open, Jason Kubler and John Peers upset Wimbledon champions Matthew Ebden and Max Purcell 4-6, 7-6(0), 10-6 to book a semi-final spot at the ATP 250 hard-court event.

Fourth seeds Ebden and Purcell saved all five break points they faced in the quarter-final encounter, but Kubler and Peers held their nerve in the second-set tie-break and then the Match Tie-break to secure a one-hour, 40-minute victory.

Haase/Oswald Ease Through In Kitzbühel
Robin Haase and Philipp Oswald’s good form on the Alpine clay continued at the Generali Open in Kitzbühel, where the Dutch-Austrian pairing triumphed 6-4, 6-3 against Sadio Doumbia and Fabien Reboul on Thursday to book a spot in the semi-finals.

Haase and Oswald reached the final in Gstaad last week, and the unseeded duo will now face Pedro Martinez and Lorenzo Sonego as they chase back-to-back Tour finals. Martinez and Sonego defeated home favourites Neil Oberleitner and Jurij Rodionov, 6-4, 3-6, 11-9.
