US Open: Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah book final spot

Colombia's Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah are a win away from winning back-to-back Grand Slam titles as they are set to meet No. 8 seeds Marcel Granollers and Horacio Zeballos in the US Open final. Cabal and Farah, seeded at No.

1, edged out British duo Jamie Murray and Neal Skupski 7-6 (5) 7-6 (8) to progress into their maiden team final at Flushing Meadows. As no break points were seen -- the first set went into a tie-break -- where Wimbledon champions Cabal and Farah converted their second set point to win a tight opener.

Cabal and Farah blew their first two match points but also saved two set points in the second set tie-break before realizing their third match point to book a final spot. Meanwhile, Granollers and Zeballos also needed two tie-breaks as they edged out French Open champions Kevin Krawietz and Andreas Mies 7-6 (2) 7-6 (5).

Granollers and Zeballos lost the opening two points of the first set tie-break but then won seven points in a row to earn the opener in style. A similar scenario happened in the second set tie-break as well as Granollers and Zeballos went on a four-point winning run to overturn a 5-3 deficit and claim the win.

Germany's Krawietz and Mies had the lone break point of the match -- which they didn't convert in the seventh game of the first set.
