Press Trust of India  |  Glasgow 

Top seeds Pranaav Jerry Chopra and N Sikki Reddy is just one step away from notching up their second Grand Prix title of the season as the duo reached the finals of USD 55,000 Scottish Open, here today.

The World No. 22 pair of Pranaav and Sikki, who had won the Grand Prix in September, progressed to the summit clash after edging past duo of Mathias Christiansen and Sara Thygesen 21-18 23-21 in a 46-minute clash.



The duo will next take on the winners of the match between French pair of Gaetan Mittelheisser and Emilie Lefel and Malaysian combo of Goh Soon Huat and Shevon Jemie Lai tomorrow.

Pranaav and Sikki, who had an easy run till the semifinals, had to dug deep especially in the second game of the semifinal match.

In the opening game, Pranaav and Sikki surged to a 5-3 slender lead and kept extending their distance to lead 17-12. However, the Danish pair clawed back at 18-18 before the Indian duo managed to reel off the next three points.

In the second game, Pranaav and Sikki once again opened up a massive 7-1 lead only to see it evaporate as Mathias and Sara drew parity at 14-14 and then turned the tables holding a 16-14 lead.

But the Indian pair ensured there are no hiccups as they showed better nerves to emerge victories.
