India's men's doubles pair of Rohan Bopanna and Ramkumar Ramanathan continued their stellar form ahead of the Australian Open. Both have reached the finals of the Adelaide International ATP 250 tournament. The unseeded Indian pair of Bopanna and Ramanathan defeated fourth-seeded Tomislav Brikic and Santiago Gonzalez in the semi-finals.

Bopanna and Ramanathan beat Bosnia's Brikic and Mexico's Gonzalez 6-2, 6-4. The Indian pair will now face top seeds Ivan Dodig of Croatia and Marcelo Melo of Brazil in the final of the ATP 250 event. It will be an interesting match as the 41-year-old Bopanna and Dodig have played together several times. Most recently, at the US Open in September last year, both had crashed out in the third round.

Bopanna and Ramkumar, who made their first pairing on the ATP tour, have had a great tournament so far. Both have now registered straight-sets victories in the tournament, barring a second-round match against the American pair of Nathaniel Lammons and Jackson Withrow. The match against Nathaniel Lammons and Jackson Withrow went to a super tie-breaker.
