45 year-old Daniel Nestor, the third most decorated champion among doubles players with 91 titles, and 36 year-old Jamie Cerretani will face either Ben McLachlan/Nicholas Monroe or Denys Molchanov/Franko Skugor in semi finals.


Dominic Inglot/Robert Lindstedt were victorious in the other doubles match of the day against 4th seed British brothers Ken and Neal Skupski. After winning the first set 7-6, the only break of the match occurred in favour of Inglot/Lindstedt in the second set to decide the winner by 6-3.

Inglot/Lindstedt booked a semi final meeting with 2nd seed Divij Sharan/Marcin Matkowski who advanced as a result of Lajovic/Troicki’s withdrew due to Troicki’s arm injury.
