Yuki scored convincing win over Spaniard Adrian Menendez-Maceiras in the straight sets ... In the first set, Yuki broke Adrian in 5th and 7th games to win it comfortably ... In the seond set Adrian gave fight, Yuki saved a break point in 4th game and he immediately broke Adrian in 5th game ... Adrian saved 4 match points in 9th game but Yuki hold for completing win.

RamK joins Yuki in the final with very dominating win ... He played perfect match against Saki ... In this match, he played percentage tennis and kept ball into play ... He served big and used passing shots smartly ... Saki struggled with fitness aa this was his fourth match in the singles and he already played two doubles matches this week ... He wasn't looking match-fit but still, this was great week for him as next week, he will be rising 300 places, around #615.

I was expecting this result after seeing struggled of Saki in the singles ... Spanish pair played smart tennis to beat Indians ... After losing the first set our pair were 2-0 up but Spanish pair won next four games, 2-4, and kept that break advantage for winning the match.
