Jonathan Erlich was invited to play the doubles match with his current partner Andy Ram, but with his injured that didn't let him play Tennis Masters Cup, Bruno Soares will replace him.

RAM/SOARES (ISR/BRA) def. MELO/SA - 7/5 3/6 10/8

The double formed by the Israeli Andy Ram and the Brazilian Bruno Soares won the Brazilians Andre Sa/Marcelo Melo by 2 sets to 1 with partial of 7/5, 3/6 and 10/8 (in the super tie-break), after 1:12 a.m. of match. The Brazilians, who arrived to go to Shanghai as double booking of the Masters Cup, and that are eighths of the world, opened 2 to 0 in the first set, with a break in the second game.

But with many breaks (seven in 12 games), Ram and Soares led the better. They missed the first opportunity to quit when they served on 5 to 4. But they didn't missed a chance in the 12th game and made 7/5. In the second set, Melo and Sa arrived to open 5 to 0, but allowed a sketch of reaction of their opponents. But they closed on 6/3.

In the super tie-break, the Israeli showed the reason that makes him one of the best doubles player in the world. With a very agressive serve and excelent volleys, he and Bruno closed at 10 to 8 to 2 to 1. Andy Ram also was very nice to do various tricks. In the fourth game of the second set, after missing a volley on the network, he handed the racket to a ballman and asked that he come in its place. And got to handle balls by a full point, tearing laughter from the public.
