Turin-Chasing Lammons/Withrow Reach Vienna Final

Dodig/Krajicek upset in Basel

Nathaniel Lammons and Jackson Withrow kept alive their hopes for a maiden Nitto ATP Finals qualification Friday when they reached their ninth tour-level final of the season at the Erste Bank Open.

Eighth in Pepperstone ATP Live Doubles Teams Rankings, the Americans rallied past Frenchmen Sadio Doumbia and Fabien Reboul 4-6, 7-6(1), 10-7 after winning 80 per cent of their first-serve points throughout one-hour, 41-minute contest.

Lammons and Withrow have collected four team titles this season: Newport, Atlanta, Winston-Salem and Astana. They will next face second seeds Rajeev Ram and Joe Salisbury or third seeds Marcelo Arevalo and Jean-Julien Rojer, who are 10th in the Race.

Ram and Salisbury advanced past wild cards Romain Arneodo and Sam Weissborn 6-3, 7-6(7) on Friday.
