Bhupathi-Knowles in Swiss ATP event final

October 25, 2008 23:13 IST

Indian Davis Cupper Mahesh Bhupathi and Mark Knowles cruised into the finals of the euro 891,000 ATP Swiss Indoor tournament, defeating Argentine pair Jose Acasuso and Agustin Calleri in straight sets in Basel on Saturday.

The Indo-Bahamas duo, currently No. 3 in the Stanford ATP Doubles Race, knocked out the Argentine pair 7-5, 6-2 in an hour and 17 minutes.

Bhupathi and Knowles improved their track record this season to 35-16. The duo also won two ATP titles at Memphis and Dubai from as many as six finals.

Bhupathi and Knowles will now take on the winner of the second semi-final between David Nalbandian and Eduardo Schwank of Argentina and Christopher Kas and Philipp Kohlschreiber of Germany.

The duo earlier prevailed over Finnish-Australian pair of Jarkko Nieminen and Jordan Kerr in the quarterfinals.
