Luke Bambridge and Dominic Inglot advanced to their first team final on Saturday at the Millennium Estoril Open.

The Brits, who joined forced at the start of the 2021 ATP Tour season, saved all seven break points they faced to beat Ariel Behar and Gonzalo Escobar 6-3, 6-4. Bambridge and Inglot were competing in their second semi-final as a team (1-1), after reaching the final four at the Singapore Open in February.


The unseeded pair denied Behar and Escobar a place in their fifth final of the season. Behar and Escobar, who have already lifted trophies in Delray Beach and Marbella in 2021, drop to 20-8 this year.

Bambridge and Inglot will face Hugo Nys and Tim Puetz in Sunday’s final. The Monegasque-German tandem outlasted second seeds Raven Klaasen and Ben McLachlan 3-6, 6-4, 14-12 in their semi-final encounter on Friday.

At the BMW Open in Munich, top seeds Wesley Koolhof and Kevin Krawietz will meet third seeds Sander Gille and Joran Vliegen in the final. Gille and Vliegen confirmed the final meeting with a 6-3, 6-7(2), 13-11 win against Dustin Brown and Peter Gojowczyk on Friday.
