Andy Ram and Yoni Erlich advanced to the semifinal of the $690,000 Vienna tournament on Wednesday, defeating Martin Garcia of Argentina and Michael Kohlmann of Germany 6-1, 6-4. The Israelis have already guaranteed themselves 110 ranking points by reaching this stage of the tournament and are closer then ever to booking their place in the season ending Masters Cup tournament in China. The pair are currently seventh in the doubles standings and need to finish in the top eight to qualify for the competition in Shanghai. Ram and Erlich, who are seeded first in Vienna, dominated their opponents throughout the match and had no trouble reaching the last four. The team took an early 3-0 lead in the first set and rolled on to take the set 6-1. The second set was a closer affair but Ram and Erlich, who are hoping to improve on their final appearance in Austria from last year, were still the better side and sealed victory by 6-4. Shahar Pe'er will be in action twice on Thursday in the Kremlin Cup in Moscow. Pe'er will first play world number seven Russian Elena Dementieva in the second round of the singles tournament and two hours after ending that match will take the court once again for the doubles quarterfinal match with Italian partner Mara Santangelo.
