Sheffield’s Jonny Marray will have a chance to pick up his first ATP World Tour title on Sunday when he plays in the final of the Open 13 tournament in Marseilles, France.

Marray and doubles partner Paul Hanley will take on either German pair Gero Kretschmer and Alexander Satschko or French duo Julien Benneteau and Edouard Roger-Vasselin, who are seeded second.

Today Marray and Hanley picked up their third win of the week with a 6-2 4-6 10-5 victory over Marin Draganja and Mate Pavic.

The pair had reached the semi-finals with wins against James Cerretani and Adil Shamasdin 6-4 7-6(3) and Hsin-Han Lee and Chieh-Fu Wang 6-4 6-3 in the quarter-final and first round respectively.

Marray and Fleming are guaranteed to win 150 ranking points and share 15,900 Euros. However, victory would bring them 250 points and 30,240 Euros.
