Day 10: Skupski and Koolhof miss out on fial spot

Neal Skupski and Wesley Koolhof were knocked out in the semi-finals of the Italian Open – bringing an end to the British challenge in Rome.

Top seeds Skupski and Koolhof were denied a final spot by Dutch team Robin Haase and Botic van de Zandschlup 7-6(2), 6-4.

The Dutch pair had to hang on during the first set to stave off break points in the fifth and seventh games. Skupski and Koolhof were unable to find the killer blow on their opportunities but Haase and Van de Zandschlup seized their first chance it with both hands – winning five of the opening six points of the tie-break and closing out the set in 55 minutes.

Haase and Van de Zandschlup clinched the victory with the only break of the match at 4-4 in the second. A brilliant return and smash combination for the Dutch duo helped set up their first break point of the match, before Skupski’s double fault all but sealed their fate.
