Saturday Showdown

Our final showdown has finally arrived; the Men's Doubles and Singles finals are here!

Finalists Roberto Baustista Agut and Juan Martin del Potro have both fought tooth and nail to get to the finals. Bautista Agut battled it out in an epic three hour, three set tie breaker to overcome Robin Haase to secure his finals day slot. As evening fell, del Potro prevailed in his semi-final slugfest against David Ferrer.
 
On the doubles court, top seeds Oliver Marach and Mate Pavic will take on Max Mirnyi and Phillip Oswald. Mirnyi and Oswald knocked  out kiwi Michael Venus and Raven Klaasen during their semi-final matchup. Marach and Pavic dropped the second set against Santiago Gonzalez and Julio Peralta before storming back in a tie break to lock in the finals.
