Andy Ram and Yoni Erlich will be aiming to claim their 15th career title together on Sunday when they play in the final of the Serbia Open in Belgrade.

The Israeli duo, which will be looking for its first title of the year after losing in the final of the Chennai Open in January, defeated Pablo Andujar and Guillermo Garcia-Lopez 6-3, 3- 6, 10-8 in an hour-and-a-half in Saturday’s semifinals.

Ram and Erlich will next face Martin Emmrich and Andreas Siljestrom.

The Israelis will be particularly desperate to win on Sunday as they have yet to secure their place at this summer’s London Olympics.

Ram and Erlich are currently ranked 50th and 48th in the world, respectively, with only 24 teams to automatically qualify for the Olympics as per the rankings on June 11, subject to a maximum of two teams per nation.

Shahar Pe’er will be looking to kick-start her season in the Madrid Open this week, beginning with Sunday’s first round match against Polona Hercog.

Pe’er hasn’t progressed past the second round in her last six tournaments.
