The Indo-Pakistani pair, seeded seventh, celebrated their maiden entry into the tour's year-ending finals in London, by rallying to a 3-6, 6-4, 10-6 win.

Bopanna and Qureshi, last year's US Open finalists, will now play third-seeded Maxi Mirnyi of Belarus and Bahamas' Daniel Nestor who beat Austria's Oliver Marach and Alexander Peya in straight sets, 6-2, 7-6 (7).
