Indian Wells: Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi set up a mouth-watering clash against Davis Cup teammate Rohan Bopanna and his partner Aisam-ul-haq Qureshi after winning their opening round match at the BNP Paribas ATP Masters.
The third-seeded Indian Express beat Simon Aspelin and Julian Knowle 7-5, 6-4 in the first round of the USD 3,645,00 hard-court event.
Bopanna and Qureshi defeated American Eric Butorac and Roger Jean-Julien 7-6(4), 6-4 in their opening round to make the last-16 stage.
In the singles event, Somdev Devvarman, who made his way into the main draw through qualifying, will take on Belgium`s Xavier Malisse tonight.

If Somdev manages to get past Malisse, he may find himself up against world number one Spaniard Rafael Nadal.
