CW Herald - Tallahassee
Narang handed lesson in disappointing semi
will look to double up in tomorrow's final after easily beating Ishan Narang
in straight sets in their first meeting. Narang has been dynamic this week, but started poorly as he fell behind a double break to the American who was riding high after a title in Baton Rouge.
Dropping the first 2-6, Narang improved substantially in the second set in the face of some good opposition but Bruce showed incredible poise as he survived five second set break points with some clutch serving and accurate forehands. In a battle of two big servers, it was the 6 ft 5 in Bruce who did enough to secure victory 6-2, 6-3
to set up a meeting with Hugh James
