RICHARD CORSIE joined his fellow Scot, Jim McCann, in the final of the Midland Bank world indoor championship when he defeated Gary Smith, 7-3, 7-3, 7-2 in Preston yesterday.

Corsie, from Edinburgh, the winner in 1989 and again two years ago, needed just five ends to take the opening set 7-3 but had to work a lot harder for the second set. The eighth seed secured victory when he took the third set 7-2 in six ends.

McCann, seeded No 15, reached the final with a comfortable 7-4, 7-4, 7-1 victory over the third seed and champion in 1986 and 1987, Tony Allcock.
