New Zealand tennis player Michael Venus and US partner Ryan Harrison are through to the semi-finals of the French Open doubles.

They downed seventh-seeded Croatian Ivan Dodig and Spanish partner Marcel Granollers 6-2 3-6 6-3 in 91 minutes after a rain-delayed match.

It's the first time a New Zealand man has made the doubles semifinals of a Grand Slam since Brett Steven and American Tommy Ho reached the last four at the French Open in 1995.

Venus and Harrison will face Colombian 16th seeds Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah for a place in the final.
