Kiwi tennis player Michael Venus is through to the semi-finals of a doubles ATP tournament in Portugal, alongside partner Ryan Harrison.

Venus and the US-born Harrison dispatched South American duo Carolos Berlocq and Sergio Glados 6-4, 6-3 in the quarter-finals in Estoril, after previously upsetting top-seeded duo Sam Groth and Robert Lindstedt in the first round.

It was all too easy for the duo, who gave up no break points to their opponents and won almost 80 per cent of their first service points.

They'll now go on to play Uruguayan Ariel Behar and Belarussian Aliaksandr Bury in the semi-finals on Saturday morning (NZT).
