Rajeev Ram and Joe Salisbury, who were attempting to regain their form, made their first-ever ATP Masters 1000 quarterfinal appearance on Monday. At the Internazionali BNL d'Italia, the second seeds fought back to defeat Italians Andrea Pellegrino and Andrea Vavassori 7-6(1), 6-7(1), and 10-7.
Ram and Salisbury, who advanced to the final in Rome in 2021, kept their composure in the Match Tie-break to win the match after an hour and 59 minutes and saved one set point in the first set.
Ram and Salisbury will take on Marcel Granollers and Horacio Zeballos in an effort to win their fourth ATP Masters 1000 title together. Ben Shelton and Daniel Evans were defeated 6-1, 7-6(1) by the Spanish-Argentine team.
