Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah reach the Roland Garros doubles semi-finals on Tuesday.

Andujar/Martinez play Bublik/Golubev in second semi-final

Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah have reached the Roland Garros semi-finals for the fourth time in the past five years (also 2017, ’19-20) after the top-seeded Colombians scraped past ninth seeds Kevin Krawietz and Horia Tecau 6-2, 6-7(3), 7-5 in two hours and 29 minutes on Tuesday.

Cabal and Farah, who won the first four games of the match, trailed Krawietz and Tecau 2-4 in the deciding set, but worked their way back to continue their bid for a third major trophy. Two years ago, the Colombians captured the Wimbledon (d. Mahut/Roger-Vasselin) and US Open (d. Granollers/Zeballos) crowns.

They now play Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Nicolas Mahut, who remained on course to capture their fifth Grand Slam doubles title after they knocked out Tomislav Brkic and Nikola Cacic 7-6(5), 6-1 in 83 minutes. The sixth-seeded Frenchmen won 31 of 38 first-service points, struck eight aces and secured the first five games of the second set.

Herbert and Mahut captured the 2018 Roland Garros crown (d. Marach/Pavic) and went on to complete the Career Grand Slam with the 2019 Australian Open title (d. Kontinen/Peers).

In the other semi-final, Spaniard Pablo Andujar and Pedro Martinez will take on Kazakhstanis Alexander Bublik and Andrey Golubev in the top half of the draw.
