9-9 in super tie break. Bopanna/Dodig were down 3-6 and now its 9-9. They had a match point but Ram/Klassen saved the match point.

Bopanna aces his way to another Match Point now.
10-9 Bopanna/Dodig.

Klassen serving.

And Dodig scores a brilliant winner and Bopanna/Dodig are through to a masters final.

Good chunk of points and good pay cheque.

Good win.

RamK was up 5-2 in his Q1 match at Cincy but just got broken back while serving for the set at 5-3 . :-(

Yes, first blood to Ram
Could have finished earlier at 4-2 with 2 break points.

Come on Ram finish it...

A superb straight sets win

All he had to so was remain calm and play his natural game and how well he followed to score an superlative win.

15 points in the bag just equal to a challenger QF

Main draw now looks within grasp.

Brilliant win by Ram. This win against higher ranked Lajovic will surely help Ram in gaining confidence during US Open qualies.

But he's got to try here and go to the main draw in cincy.

Well done Ram, may the force be with you.

Next up for Ram is fellow 22-year old Martener who beat Prajnesh quite comfortably 6-2, 7-6(1)

The German is more of a clay courter so Ram should have his chances.

Fabulous win for Ramkumar!! What a year he is having so far, absolutely stunning stuff -- his third top-100 win of 2017. He has beaten then-#8 Thiem, #68 Lajovic, then-#68 Dutra-Silva. And also has wins over Polansky and Andreozzi (who were then ranked in the 120s), plus future stars Duckhee Lee and Tommy Paul. RamK is right there among the top 22 year olds in the world!

Winnable match and the very fact Pragnesh could stretch him in the second set makes victory for Ram a high possibilty.

Nice to see Leander pulling a coup with an exciting talent

Excellent win by RamK. Good that he got this confidence boost after a couple of lean weeks. Merterer lost to Lajovic in his last match before this week. So, if law of transitivity woks here, RamK should win. :D
