AN all-Australian final has set up a thrilling climax to the doubles at the second William Loud Bendigo International on Friday.
The second seeds will face the third-ranked pair on court one at the BTA's Nolan Street courts, not before 12.30pm.
Olivia Rogowska and Monique Adamczak will start slight favourites against third seeds Sally Peers and Stephanie Bengson.
Rogowska and Adamczak will have added motivation after losing the final in the first tournament last week to sisters Erika and Yurika Sema.
On Thursday, the second seeds had to fight hard to get past Belarus' Ysaline Bonaventure and Estonia's Anett Kontaveit 6-4 6-4.
Bonaventure and Kontaveit will be kicking themselves for not converting break point opportunities.
The international duo only broke the second seeds twice from nine chances, but were themselves broken four times from six opportunities.
Australian duo Peers and Bengson also won 6-4 6-4 against Nicole Collie and Croatia's Ema Mikulcic.
Both pairs struggled on serve, with 12 breaks from 26 opportunities in another tight contest.
