Peers through to US Open doubles final

John Peers is flying the flag for Australia’s men at the US Open with the Melburnian reaching the doubles final with teammate Jamie Murray.

The 27-year-old, who teamed up with the older brother of world No.3 Andy, had to dig deep before beating US pairing Steve Johnson and Sam Querrey 6-4 6-7 (7-2) 7-6 (9-7) in a gripping semi-final.

They will now face France’s Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Nicolas Mahut in the final after the French pairing defeated Dominic Inglot of Britain and Robert Lindstedt of Sweden 7-5 6-2 in the other semi-final.

In the women’s doubles, No.4 seeds Australian Casey Dellacqua and Kazakhstan’s Yaroslava Shvedova are taking on Germany’s Anna-Lena Groenefeld and local Coco Vandeweghe in the semi-finals.

Awaiting the winner in the final are no.1 seeds Martina Hingis and India’s Sania Mirza.
