They had beaten Japanese combination of Yusuke Takahashi and Jumpei Yamasaki 6-2, 6-3 on grass Court No.6 of the All England Club to reach the semi-finals.

The 17-year-old Delhi-born Nagal and his partner will take on American-Japanese fourth seeds Reilly Opelka and Akira Santillan in the title clash.
