Wasn't RamK playing San Francisco or did I get that totally wrong?
Yes, he was there in the entry list but he withdrew as I mentioned in RamK's thread.

Jeevan/Chris progress to the SF with a STB win. Jeevan saved a match point serving 8-9 after having trailed 6-8 and showed great composure towards the end of the game.

Well that sucks. Should be a brilliant match though. Close STB won for someone. Too close to pick a winner. It's on the main Cort at 5pm local time so might be streamed on the ATP site.

Looking at the draw I will be bold enough to say that the winner will play in the final against Inglot and Skupski.

That's brutal. Even though it is hard to pick sides, I feel Divij and Lipsky have an edge here. After all, they played more matches together in the recent past and are in a better rhythm. May the better team win!

Good win for Divij/Scott against Huey (who was once ranked #18 in 2016). The pair was leading 4-2 in the second set breaking Purav's service game but Lipsky gave away the lead immediately.

[R1] Treat Huey (PHI)/ Purav Raja (IND) 4-6 6-7 (6) Divij Sharan (IND)/ Scot Lipsky (USA)

Marching on! Tough R2 match waiting against 4th seeds Monroe/Withrow i.e if the 4th seeds clear the first hurdle.

Divij and Lipsky lost in straight sets.

At $150K+H Irving 2018, Texas, USA

[R2] Divij Sharan (IND)/ Scot Lipsky (USA) l. (4) Nicholas Monroe (USA) / Jackson Withrow (USA) 26 36

Divij is 3 out from original doubles entry list at Miami along with Demoliner. Hope he gets to play there.

I know the thread was for Feb-March but Jeevan and Purav are playing the Sarasota $100K ATP challenger tournament this week, hence posting it here.
