Paris Masters - Semifinals
Anil Mehul got off to a good start in the first semi, but Girish Girsh rallied for a three-set win. It was a similar story in the second match, with Iglar ending Davide Poilblan's bid for the tour finals 3-6, 6-4, 6-2. A game effort, but he had too much ground to make up and it will be Bourdet who represents France there for the first time in my memory at least. Girsh has a chance to all but lock down the year-end #1 spot in the final; if he loses, all bets are off.
