ATP: Huey, American partner advance to Hamburg Challenger semis


For the second straight week, Treat Huey and Max Schnur of the United States are in the semifinals of the ATP Challenger Tour.

Huey, the recent Vietnam SEA Games men’s doubles gold medalist, and Schnur prevailed in straight sets on Thursday over Jelle Sels of the Netherlands and Benjamin Hassan of Lebanon, 6-1, 7-6 (7-4), in the quarterfinals of the ATP Challenger Hamburg in Germany.

Seeded first in the competition, Huey and Schnur hardly labored in the opening set as they broke Hassan’s serves twice and Sels once en route to a dominant win.

The second set, however, was a totally different story as both sides held serve in the first twelve games to send the set to a tiebreaker.

But Huey and Schnur raced to a commanding 5-1 lead in the second set tiebreak to extinguish any hopes by Sels and Hassan to extend the match to a deciding third set.

Huey and Schnur will now advance to the final four where they will be facing third seeds Artem Sitak of New Zealand and Sem Verbeek of Netherlands.

Just last week, Huey and Schnur also made the semifinals of the Saint Tropez Open in France.

Meanwhile, Alex Eala’s own Hamburg campaign came to a screeching halt as she was booted out in the second round by 28-year-old top seed Ysaline Bonaventure of Italy, 4-6, 0-6.ATP:
