NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 24/05/2017

New Zealand's Marcus Daniell must get through mercurial Australian Nick Kyrgios if he is to qualify for the doubles final at an ATP tournament in France.

Daniell and Brazilian Marcelo Demoliner won through to the semi-finals of the event in Lyon, showing good form at a last lead-up tournament ahead of the French Open starting next week.

The pair, who ousted the second seeds in round one, took nearly two hours to win their quarter-final over German Andre Begemann and Austrian Philipp Oswald 7-6 5-7 10-8.

Lying in wait is world singles No.19 and regular headline-maker Kyrgios, who is teaming this week with compatriot Matt Reid.
