Janowicz's dream run continues

PARIS, November 3, 2012, Reuters:
Polish qualifier Jerzy Janowicz continued to be a thorn on the side of higher ranked opponents this week as he reached the Paris Masters final with a 6-4, 7-5 win over local favourite Gilles Simon on Saturday.

Janowicz, who beat US Open champion Andy Murray in the third round, used his big serve and his magic touch to see off Simon in just 89 minutes.

The world number 69 Janowicz claimed his fifth top 20 scalp in Bercy to set up a final showdown with Spanish fourth seed David Ferrer.

Ferrer got the better of Frenchman Michael Llorda 7-5, 6-3 in the second semifinal.

Hesh-Bopanna win


Indian duo Mahesh Bhupathi and Rohan Bopanna claimed a berth in the ATP World Tour Finals in London with a 6-7 (5-7), 6-3, 10-4 win over Poles Mariusz Fyrstenberg and Marcin Matkowski in the quarterfinals. Friday’s victory in the winner-takes-all clash will see the Indians making debut as a team in the season finale at London.

Czechs take 2-0 lead
