Tennis player Wesley Koolhof has reached the final battle of the Indian Wells doubles tournament for the first time. The number 1 in the world, together with his British partner Neal Skupski, was 6-3 4-6 10-5 too strong for Santiago Gonzalez from Mexico and the Frenchman Édouard Roger-Vasselin.
For 33-year-old Koolhof, it will be his first final at the Indian Wells masters tournament, which is considered the fifth grand slam tournament. He reached the quarter-finals last year, but previously never got further than the second round.
In the final battle, Koolhof and Skupski will compete against the Indian Rohan Bopanna and Matthew Ebden from Australia. They were too strong for John Isner and Jack Sock in two tiebreaks.
Koolhof and Skupski are aiming for their first title of the year. Last year they won no less than seven tournaments, including three masters tournaments.
