The Croatian pair easily defeated Americans Mackenzie McDonald and Tommy Paul for a final score of 6:1, 6:4.

The duo will face the winner of Saturday’s match between Britons Neal and Ken Skupski and the Australian-Brazilian duo John Millman and Thiago Moura Monteiro.

Mektic and Pavic extend their unbeaten record as a team to 10-0. Earlier this month, the pair claimed the Murray River Open trophy after winning the Antalya Open last month.
