Venus through

The Southland Times - - SPORT -

Michael Venus and Ryan Har­ri­son have qual­i­fied for the semi­fi­nals of the ATP Fi­nals, win­ning their se­cond match yes­ter­day. Venus and Har­ri­son de­feated Ni­cholas Mahut and Pierre-Hugues Hu­bert 6-7 6-4 10-5, for their se­cond vic­tory in the pool stage. Those two vic­to­ries mean that even though they still have to play against Julien Ro­jer and Ho­ria Te­cau in a cou­ple of days’ time, they have al­ready qual­i­fied for the knock­out stages of the lu­cra­tive sea­son end­ing tour­na­ment at the O2 Arena in Lon­don. The vic­to­ries mean Venus has al­ready earned $NZ100,000 from his time at the tour­na­ment and it takes his prize money for the year to $NZ873,000.
