Rohan Bopanna and Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi reached their third Tour level final of the season after clinching a three-set thriller against Leos Friedl of Italy and Serbian Dusan Vemic in Nice, France.
The Indo-Pak pair scored a hard earned 7-6 (5), 3-6, 10-8 win in the semifinals of the euro 398,250 clay court event.
They will next meet winners of the other semifinal between the pairs of Andreas Seppi/ Potito Starace and Marcelo Melo/Bruno.
Bopanna and Qureshi had won their first title of the season together at Johannesburg in February.
Last month they had lost the final of the Casablanca event.
They also made two finals of the ATP Challenger tour in March, winning in Jersey, Great Britain while losing the Italy competition.
