Kiwi Venus loses ATP doubles semi-final

NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 8/04/2016

New Zealand doubles specialist Michael Venus has suffered a gruelling semi-final doubles loss at an ATP tournament in Morocco.

Chasing their fourth doubles title together in 2016, Venus and Croatian partner Mate Pavic lost 5-7 6-4 10-7 to Argentine pair Guillermo Duran and Maximo Gonzalez at the Grand Prix Hassan II event in Marrakech.

However, the latest performance from the tournament third seeds is likely to provide another rankings boost for Venus, who has climbed to 41st in doubles.
