Bhupathi, Sania reach Pilot Pen finals

Mahesh Bhupathi and Sania Mirza fought their way to the doubles finals of their respective events at the Pilot Pen Classic in New Haven, USA.

Though it was a straight-set victory for Bhupathi and his Serbian partner Nenad Zimonjic, the going was not easy for the top seeds who managed a 7-5, 7-6 (2) win to book their berth in the men's doubles summit clash.

In the final, the Indo-Serbian pair will meet Polish duo of Mariusz Fyrstenberg and Marcin Matkowski.

Fourth-seeded Fyrstenberg and Matkowski defeated Jordan Kerr of Australia and Jamie Murray of Britain 6-2, 6-3.

Sanjay's fans missing on final day

Anxious to see Sanjay Dutt, hundreds of fans had gathered on Tuesday and Wednesday, many dressed in their best to look good on television.

On Thursday morning, however, there were absolutely no fans outside the jail, barring journalists and television crew, to whom Dutt waved as he stepped out.

However, his 3-km journey to the Lohegaon airport took nearly 30 minutes and was full of high drama as about 15 media vehicles followed him and brought his jeep to a halt on many occasions.
