Great result for Rohan and Ebden and with that win the pair qualify for the year-end championships, which will be held in Turin from 12-19 November. :clap: :notworthy:
Good to see them secure a place in this prestigious event, especially Rohan who is nearly 44!!

What an unbelievable year Bops has had. Totally unexpected. Now he is getting even closer to having enough points to qualify for another Olympics at age 44. :notworthy:

And they are thru to their 4th masters final of the year.

At Paris Masters 1000, France (Hard)

[SF] (3) Rohan Bopanna (IND) /Matthew Ebden (AUS) d. Harri Heliovaara (GRE) / Mate Pavic (CRO) 67(4) 64 10-6

Next,

[F] (3) Rohan Bopanna (IND) /Matthew Ebden (AUS) vs. (7) Santiago Gonzalez (MEX) /Edouard Roger-Vasselin (FRA)

Bops and Ebden have beaten this pair twice this year but both were in clay season in April. If they win the title Bops will move to world #4 from the current position of #8 and Eben will move to #2.

Bops 2 wins from becoming the number 1 player in the world. If he accomplishes this, I would imagine he would be by far the oldest player to achieve this ranking for the first time.

Yes, terrific effort and terrific year for Bops. He will finish the year as world #3, his highest year end ranking ever. He had his best year at 43.
