Huey, pal in semis

Philippines’ No. 1 player Treat Huey and Max Mirnyi of Belarus resumed their fiery charge after advancing in the semifinals of the Millennium Estoril Open in Portugal yesterday.

The second-seeded Huey and Mirnyi relied on their aggressive plays and thumped Great Britain’s Kyle Edmund and local bet Frederico Ferreira Silva, 6-4, 6-4, to inch closer to the crown in this Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) 500 claycourt event.

The win set up Huey and Mirnyi a date with fourth pick Eric Butorac and Scott Lipsky of the United States, who dominated Spaniard duo Pablo Carreno Busta and Iñigo Cervantes, 6-3, 6-1.
