Puetz/Venus advance into their second tour-level final of the season

Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Nicolas Mahut moved to within one win of capturing their second Rolex Paris Masters title as a team Saturday, edging sixth seeds John Peers and Filip Polasek 2-6, 6-3, 11-9.

The third seeds triumphed in the French capital in 2019 and showed their fighting qualities against Peers and Polasek, raising their level from 9/9 in the Match Tie-break to advance after one hour and 30 minutes.

The Frenchmen will next face Tim Puetz and Michael Venus after the German-New Zealand team downed Jamie Murray and Bruno Soares 7-5, 6-3 after 89 minutes.

Puetz and Venus hit four aces and saved all three break points they faced to advance. They have yet to drop a set this week and are aiming to win their second tour-level title of the season as a team, after lifting the trophy in Hamburg.
