Israeli tennis duo Andy Ram and Yoni Erlich made history on Sunday by clinching a spot in the season-ending Masters Cup - the first ever Israeli appearance in the lucrative tournament, in which the eight highest ranked singles players and the eight highest ranked doubles teams in the world battle it out. This year's tournament will be played in Shanghai. Ram and Erlich clinched a spot after the Polish team of Mariusz Fyrstenberg and Marcin Matkowski lost in the final of the Swiss Indoors tournament 4-6, 6-4, 10-8 to Mark Knowles and Daniel Nestor. On Friday afternoon, Ram and Erlich lost in the quarterfinals of the $800,000 Lyon Grand Prix. The Israelis, ranked seventh in the year-long ATP doubles race, lost to the French pair of Julien Benneteau and Arnaud Clement 6-3, 6-4.
