Paes-Dlouhy in final of Brisbane event

January 08, 2010 20:56 IST

Top seeds Leander Paes and Lukas Dlouhy on Friday earned a shot at the title of the season opener ATP Brisbane International event after overcoming a second set lapse against Jurgen Melzer and Philipp Petzschner in Brisbane.

The Indo-Czech pair edged past unseeded Austrian-German pair 6-4, 0-6, 10-7 in the semi-final of the $372,500 hard court event.

They will meet the winners of the Andy Roddick/James Blake vs Jeremy Chardy/ Marc Gicquel semi-final match in Sunday's summit clash.

Paes and Dlouhy had got a quarter-final walk over from Australian pair of Ashley Fisher and Stephen Huss, on Thursday.
