Israel reached the Davis Cup semi-finals for the first time on Saturday when they defeated 2002 and 2006 champions Russia in their quarter-final.

Doubles pair Jonathan Erlich and Andy Ram clinched the crucial point beating Igor Kunitsyn and Marat Safin 6-3, 6-4, 6-7 (3/7), 4-6, 6-4 to open up an unassailable 3-0 lead.

Israel will face either defending champions Spain or Germany in September’s semi-finals.
