Raipur: Punjab Marshalls became the first team to cement its place in the final of the Champions Tennis League, defeating Raipur Rangers 20-18 in a thrilling encounter to top Group 'A' here yesterday.

Coming into the match, Punjab had a 4-point lead and a 5-game cushion to bank on, as it faced Raipur Rangers on their home ground at the Balbir Juneja Stadium.

In what was touted as a virtual semi-final, Punjab Marshalls got off to a good start, with captain Greg Rusedski and Elina Svitolina winning their sets.

However, a setback in the mixed doubles and a hard-earned victory in men's doubles put Marshalls on the backfoot.
