ROGERS CUP 2014
Dodig/Melo Soar Into Toronto Final
by ATP Staff|
The Croatian-Brazilian tandem advanced to their second ATP World Tour Masters 1000 title match of the year, having fallen in the Monte-Carlo final to Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan. They are chasing a second such trophy following a title run at the Shanghai Rolex Masters last year (d. Marrero/Verdasco).
Cilic and Gonzalez, who relinquished just six games in a second-round upset of the top-seeded Bryans, were competing in their second tournament as a team. They reached the quarter-finals at the Internazionali BNL d'Italia in May.
Peya and Soares are bidding for a tenth team title. This season, they lifted the Queen's Club trophy ahead of Wimbledon and also finished as runners-up on five other occasions (Hamburg, Eastbourne, Indian Wells, Auckland, and Doha).
The Toronto doubles final will be shown live online on Sunday.
