Bordeaux Challenger 2017, France

[SF] (3) Divij Sharan (IND)/ Purav Raja (IND) bt (2) Scott Lipsky (USA)/ Leander Paes (IND) 62 63

Nice and easy straight sets win by Divij/Purav to move into the finals. :goodluck: in the finals.
They will meet the winners of Philipp Oswald/J. Erlich vs. (4) S. González/Artem Sitak, which is delayed...

Congrats to DiPu for a big win, thus making another Challenger final.

Leander has a lot of points (360) to defend at Roland Garros, where he made the Doubles QF last year.
