IN BREAKING NEWS - overnight Venus/Peers have won through to the semi-finals!

Michael Venus and his Australian doubles partner John Peers are through to the Rome Masters quarter finals after a dramatic second round win in the Italian capital.

Venus and Peers have beaten Finland’s Henri Kontinen and Germany’s Jan Lennard Struff 7-6 (4) 3-6 14-12 in 1 hour 42.

The match tie break was remarkable in that Venus and Peers saved four match points and converted on their second match point while Venus served three doubles faults in the decider.

Venus and Peers had made a great start to the match with an early break of Struff’s serve to go up 2-0 but the Kiwi dropped his opening service game and the first set was eventually decided in a tie break.

Peers dropped his serve in the second set as Kontinen and Struff levelled things up to set up the thrilling finish.

Venus and Peers will face the Italian wildcard pair of Lorenzo Sonego and Andrea Vavassori in the quarter finals.
