ATP World Tour: Mahesh Bhupathi and Rohan Bopanna advance to final
Indian tennis pair of Mahesh Bhupathi and Rohan Bopanna, seeded fifth, saved one match point to advance to Monday's title match at the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals beating the third seeded Indo-Czech pair of Leander Paes and Radek Stepanek at The O2 here late Sunday.

The all-Indian team advanced to the final with a 4-6, 6-1, 12-10 victory over Paes and Radek and avenged their loss in last month's Shanghai Rolex Masters final.

Bhupathi and Bopanna came into the London tournament on the back of lifting their first ATP World Tour Masters 1000 trophy at the BNP Paribas Masters.

"We wouldn't mind a few more weeks on tour," said Bhupathi, on their strong finish to the 2012 season. We have got one match to go and (after we) get back into focus, after celebrating for the next two hours. We'd like to finish with the title here."

Bhupathi and Bopanna will next play sixth seeds Marcel Granollers and Marc Lopez, who defeated eighth seeds Jonathan Marray and Frederik Nielsen 6-4, 6-3 later in on Sunday.

In the first set, Paes and Stepanek converted their fourth break point opportunity on Bhupathi's serve, winning a sudden death deuce for a 4-3 lead. When serving for the set at 5-4, Stepanek came through a testing point at 30/30, with the Czech and Paes being forced to defend their position at the net.

Stepanek hit an unreturned serve to seal the 36-minute opener. Paes and Stepanek lost just eight of their 28 service points.

Bhupathi and Bopanna put Paes under pressure in the third game of the second set. Paes fell to 0/40, clawed back two points, but uncharacteristically hit a backhand volley into the net to gift his fellow Indians a 3-1 lead.

Bopanna, who served well throughout with great pace and change in direction, went onto confirm the break.

With Bhupathi and Bopanna in the asecendancy, they extended their lead to 5-1 after two terrific returns in Stepanek's service game. Bhupathi closed out the 25 minute set with a hold to 15. Paes and Stepanek won just 12 points and 33 per cent of their first serves.
