French Open: Rohan Bopanna and Roger-Vasselin reach men’s doubles quarters

The 13th seeded Indo-French team beat the Brazilian-Polish combo 6-4 7-6(1) in one hour and 30 minutes in the third round. It’s the third time that Bopanna has reached quarterfinal stage at Roland Garros. He made it to the last-eight pairs in 2011 and 2016 also.

Bopanna and Roger-Vasselin saved five of the six break chances while they converted two of the breakpoints on their opponents’ serve. They next face Nikola Mektic and Alexander Peya for a place in the semifinals.

Bopanna is the only Indian surviving in the clay court Grand Slam as all others have suffered defeats.
