Meydan Street to close from 9pm onwards as 75km NAS Cycling takes place this weekend on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights

Dubai, United Arab Emirates - April 21, 2021:   Team ‘Uncle Saeed', comprising Sheikh Saeed Bin Maktoum Bin Juma Al Maktoum and Abdulrazak Ahmed, are through to the Men's Bronze Category final of the Nad Al Sheba Sports Tournament's Padel Championship, where they meet Humaid Ghanem Al Hajeri and Farhan Hudda for the title on April 26.

Sheikh Saeed Bin Maktoum and Ahmed, who opened their campaign with a tough 6-4, 3-6, 7-5 win over Butii Al Suwaidi and Mohammed Al Shamsi, and then edged Luis Cobo and Salvador Medina 6-3, 7-6 in the quarterfinals, came bolting out of the blocks in the semifinals on Tuesday night, blanking Jordi Perpina and Ignacio Barroso in the opening set before booking their place in the final with a 6-0, 6-3 win.
Earlier in the first semis, Al Hajeri and Hudda had a much tougher time against Thomas Benaroya and Hazem Shish, but after taking the first set in a tie-break, they progressed with a 7-6, 6-4 win.
Bek and Babic in women's final

There was a nail-biting tussle in the first semi-final of the Women's Bronze Category as well, with the match heading into the third-set where Josipa Bek and Selma Babic prevailed for a 6-4, 7-5, 6-4 win over Jessica Palma and Luli Guerrero.

Bek and Babic now await the winner of the second semi-final between Karina Simeonova Lozova and Alessa Belbes, and Hafsah Sani and Khadeejah Sani. The final of the Women's Bronze Category will take place on April 25.

There were two Golden Category quarterfinals played on Tuesday night, and they were a lot simpler affairs with, first, Javier Lopez Garcia and Alexander Farquharson cruising to a 6-1, 6-0 win over Marc Ruiviejo Cirera and Victor Arruiz, before Saeed Al Marri and Claudio Bobadilla joined them in the last-four with a 6-2, 6-1 win over Cristian Donnet and Andre Delmar.
