The World No. 1 doubles team from the previous year, Wesley Koolhof and Neal Skupski, were defeated by Santiago Gonzalez and Edouard Roger-Vasselin in the semi-finals in Indian Wells. The team overcame a set deficit on Wednesday in Miami to defeat the city's top seeds 4-6, 7-6(5), 10-5 and advance to their second straight ATP Masters 1000 semi-final.
The winner of Nathaniel Lammons/Jackson Withrow and Lloyd Glasspool/Harri Heliovaara, who were tied at 3/4 in a match tie-break when rain stopped play for the evening, will proceed to face the Mexican-French pairing.
The only other doubles match played on Wednesday saw German Kevin Krawietz and Frenchman Fabrice Martin move to the semi-finals by defeating American singles stars Tommy Paul and Ben Shelton 6-3, 7-5. American Austin Krajicek and Frenchman Nicolas Mahut will play them next.
