New Delhi: Indian Davis Cupper Rohan Bopanna and his Pakistani partner Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi rallied from a set down to advance to the semifinals of Gerry Weber Open with a 4-6, 7-6 (5), 10-4 victory over Dustin Brown of Germany
and France`s Gael Monfils at Halle, Germany today.

together and bounced back in the second set before wrapping
the match in the deciding third set.
In the semifinals, Bopanna and Qureshi will take on
winners of the match between the German combo of Christopher
Kas and Philipp Kohlschreiber and Finland`s Jarkko Nieminen
and Viktor Troicki of Serbia.
