Butorac-Rojer Reach Third Final Of Season

Nice, France

Second seeds Eric Butorac and Jean-Julien Rojer advanced to their third ATP World Tour doubles final of the season on Friday as they edged third seeds Frantisek Cermak and Filip Polasek 7-6(3), 7-5 at the Open de Nice Côte d’Azur.

In a match featuring five breaks of serve, American Butorac and Rojer of the Netherlands Antilles converted three of their eight opportunities to claim victory in one hour and 39 minutes. They have not dropped a set en route to the final.

Currently No. 6 in the 2011 ATP Doubles Team Rankings, Butorac and Rojer are chasing their second title of the season after victory on clay at the Estoril Open (d. M. Lopez-Marrero) three weeks ago. They also finished runners-up in Memphis (l. to Mirnyi-Nestor) and reached the semi-finals at the Australian Open (l. to Bryans).

The 29-year-old Butorac is looking to win his 11th ATP World Tour title in 15 finals, while Rojer, also 29, is bidding for his fourth trophy in his 11th final.
