After a few disappointing tournaments earlier in the year, Ajay Jayaram seems to have finally found some much-needed form and has a great chance to carry it forward when he faces the top seed Tommy Sugiarto of Russia in the semifinals of the 2015 Russian Open on Saturday.
As far as Manu Attri and Sumeeth Reddy are concerned, they would be hoping they haven't developed any rust into their game when they face the home pair of Vladimir Ivanov and Ivan Sozonov in the semis, considering that they didn't play either their third round or quarterfinal matches.
Also in action will be the newly-formed mixed doubles pairing of Akshay Dewalkar and Prajakta Sawant, who will look to progress through to their maiden final when they face the Japanese pairing of Yuta Watanabe and Arisa Higashino in the semis.
Here’s the full schedule:
|1.||Men’s Singles||Ajay Jayaram vs Tommy Sugiarto|
|2.||Men’s Doubles||Manu Attri/Sumeeth Reddy vs Vladimir Ivanov/Ivan Sozonov|
|3.||Mixed Doubles||Akshay Dewalkar/Prajakta Sawant vs Yuta Watanabe/Arisa Higashino|
