SA’s Wimbledon dream continues as Klaasen storms into doubles final

Cape Town – South Africa’s Raven Klaasen and partner Michael Venus of New Zealand are through to the final of the men’s doubles at Wimbledon after defeating  Denmark’s Frederik Nielsen and Britain’s Joe Salisbury in their semi-final clash on Thursday.

The 13th-seeded pair won the encounter 7-6 (8/6), 3-6, 6-3 and 6-4 in a match that lasted 2 hours and 25 minutes. 

This is now Klaasen’s best ever result at Wimbledon after he had reached the semi-finals before in 2016.
