Paes-Dlouhy advance to UNICEF Open final

June 19, 2010 17:01 IST

Top seeds Leander Paes and Lukas Dlouhy earned a shot at their second title of the season after reaching the summit clash of the UNICEF Open with a win over Benjamin Becker and Scott Lipsky.

The Indo-Czech pair converted as many as seven breakpoints out of eight in their 7-6(3), 6-1, win over the German-American pair in the semi-finals of the ATP 250 event in s-Hertogenbosch, The Netherlands.

They will take on Robert Lindstedt of Sweden and Horia Tecau of Romania in the final.

Paes and Dlouhy had ended runners-up at Roland Garros earlier this month and won the Miami Masters Series title in April.

It will be Paes and Dlouhy's fifth appearance in an ATP world Tour final this season.
