LOS ANGELES - Playing on the very same courts where he earned All-America status as a Bruin player, Jean-Julien Rojer and partner Eric Butorac earned a spot in Sunday's Farmers Classic doubles final with a semifinal victory on Saturday.
Rojer and Butorac downed Ross Hutchins and Jordan Kerr, 6-3, 6-2 in their semifinal encounter, setting up a showdown with Bob and Mike Bryan on Sunday. Rojer and Butorac are seeking their first title together, while the Bryan twins can break the all-time record of ATP doubles championships with a victory on Sunday. The Bryans, who have 61 titles, are currently tied for the career lead with Australian pair of Mark Woodforde and Todd Woodbridge.
Rojer was a two-time All-American at UCLA, lettering from 2000-02. He turned pro following his junior season.
