Score Big Win

(by ATP staff)

Fifth seeds Ivan Dodig and Marcelo Melo earned a key win in their bid to qualify for the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals on Saturday, beating top seeds Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan 6-7(5), 7-5, 10-7 in the semi-finals of the Shanghai Rolex Masters.

The Croatian/Brazilian duo are sixth in the Emirates ATP Doubles Team Rankings, with the Top 8 teams at the end of the regular season qualifying for the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals in London next month. They would earn 1000 ranking points by winning the Shanghai title.

Dodig and Melo are bidding for their first team title this week. They finished runners-up to the Bryans in the Wimbledon final and also reached the US Open semi-finals (l. to Peya/Soares).

In the final, Dodig and Melo will face Spaniards David Marrero and Fernando Verdasco. Marrero and Verdasco beat fellow London contenders Jamie Murray and John Peers 7-6(4), 7-6(9) in one hour and 32 minutes, withstanding 11 aces and saving two of three break points.
