EQUEURDREVILLE, FRANCE: Severine Beltrame and Laura Thorpe joined forces in doubles on the ITF Pro Circuit earlier this year and are now on the brink of making a fifth final appearance from nine tournaments on the Circuit.
The second seeded French duo, who also played Roland Garros together, have won all four of their finals competed so far including the $100,000 tournaments in Marseille and Biarritz.
Standing in their way of making another final appearance is the Swiss-Croatian partnership of Amra Sadikovic and Ana Vrljic who are the number three seeds.
Both pairs should be fresh for their semifinal clash with this being the French duos first match of the tournament following a first round Bye and then being awarded a walkover in the quarterfinal whilst their third seeded opponents have only played three games. They too received a first round Bye and then had their quarterfinal opponents retire early in the first set of the semifinal.
Awaiting the winners in the final are the young Polish fourth seeds, Magda Linette and Katarzyna Piter who eliminated the top seeds in a tough three setter in their semifinal.
