Murray/Soares To Meet Top Seeds Mektic/Pavic In Eastbourne SFs
To get to the title match at the Rothesay International in Eastbourne, Jamie Murray and Bruno Soares will have to go through both finalists from last week's Cinch Championships at The Queen's Club in London.
The British-Brazilian duo is halfway there after a 6-4, 7-5 win against London finalists Lloyd Glasspool and Harri Heliovaara on Wednesday. They can now look froward to a Thursday semi-final showdown against top seeds and London champions Nikola Mektic and Mate Pavic. The Croatians defeated Maxime Cressy and Ugo Humbert 7-6(9), 6-1 to reach the last four.
