Leander Paes and Lukas Dlouhy battled their way into the doubles final in the 713,000 euros Gerry Weber Open tennis tournament in Halle, Germany, on Friday.
The fourth seeded Indo-Czech pair scored a thrilling 6-4, 0-6, 10-4 (match tie-break) victory over Ivan Ljubicic and Robin Soderling in the semi-finals.
Bad weather conditions forced match to be halted for an hour after Paes and Dlouhy took the first set. But after play resumed, Ljubicic and Soderling made the most of a 4-0 lead and took the second set 6-0.
However, Dlouhy and Paes quickly regained composure in the tie-break and won the last six points to seal the match at 10-4.
In the final they will meet the winners of the other semi-final between wild cards Christopher Kas - Philipp Petzschner of Germany and the Russian-German pair of Mikail Youzhny-Mischa Zverev.
The former beat Marc Gicquel and Fabrice Santoro 6-4, 7-5, while the latter secured a passage to the last four at the cost of Radek Stepanek and Tomas Berdyc, who gave a walk-over.
