Andy Ram and Yoni Erlich lost for the first time in 10 matches on Saturday. The Israeli duo was defeated 7-5, 4-6, 10-7 by Tomas Berdych and Dmitry Tursunov in the semifinals of the ATP tournament in Rotterdam. The Australian Open champions defeated Frenchmen Julien Benneteau and Nicolas Mahut 6-2, 5-7, 10-6 to advance to the last four on Friday. Ram and Erlich have reached at least the semifinals stage in three of the four tournaments they've played this year. Shahar Pe'er and Dudi Sela, who will both play in Memphis this week, were handed their draws on Saturday. Pe'er, who lost to Venus Williams in the final in Memphis last year, faces world No. 125 Ahsha Rolle in the first round of the WTA tournament. Sela (63) was drawn to play Alejandro Falle (85) in the ATP event and will likely face world No. 9 James Blake in the second round should he win.
