There will be guaranteed British interest in the ATP 250 Dusseldorf final, as the all-British pairing of Colin Fleming and Jonathan Marray set up a semi-final with Dominic Inglot and his partner Treat Huey.
Fleming/Marray  def Murray/Peers 7-5, 6-4
In the first set, both teams served strongly with two breaks for “Flemarray” and just one for the Brit/Aussie pairing.
The second set saw the first serving percentage drop a little for both, but Fleming/Marray broke twice again to edge the match.
It was a strong start for Inglot/Huey, breaking in the first game of the match, only got Inglot to lose his serve at 3-1.
The set continued on serve saw the pairs trade mini-breaks, before Inglot/Huey were able to pull away to lead 6-3.
Brands and Sijsling were able to save one of the set points, but the set went to the British/Philippine pair after 40 minutes.
The momentum stayed with them, as they broke early, but missed out on a chance to have a double-break cushion.
The single break was all they needed, as they sealed the second set in 30 minutes.
