BRITAIN’S Ed Corrie will take on American Christian Harrison today at Graves Tennis Centre in the final of the Aegon Pro-Series Sheffield tournament.

Corrie booked his place with a 7-6 6-2 win over Dan Smethurst while Harrison saw off David Rice 6-2 6-4.

He said: “I have been really determined to back up last week, and am really pleased to be where I am. There’s now one more part of the job to be done in the final.”

The Men’s Doubles title went to top seeds David Rice and Sean Thornley, capturing their 15th pro career title together.

In the final yesterday they beat Dan Evans and Andy Fitzpatrick 6-2 7-6 saving a set point in the 2nd set tie-break. After the match the pair outlined their plans for playing some ATP Challenger events in Europe and North America, with the goal of playing Wimbledon again this year (they qualified for the Wimbledon Doubles in 2011).

The final starts at 11am with courtside seating available. Entry is free.
