NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 28/10/2016

Michael Venus has helped account for the third seeds at an ATP doubles tournament in Switzerland and is eyeing up the top seeds in the semi-finals.

Venus and Swedish partner Robert Lindstedt toppled South African Raven Klaasen and American Rajeev Ram 6-4 7-5 in the quarter-finals of the Swiss Indoors in Basel on Friday.

Next up are top seeds Horia Tecau of Romania and Dutchman Jean-Julien Rojer.

It is the first time Venus has progressed beyond the first round of an ATP 500 tournament and should result in a boost to his New Zealand-leading world ranking of 39th.
