Eastbourne: Rohan Bopanna recorded his 100th career doubles win on Wednesday after he and Aisam ul-Haq Qureshi scored a straight-set victory over Spaniards Pablo Andujar and Guillermo Garcia-Lopez at the AEGON International.

Bopanna and Qureshi defeated the Spaniard duo 6-3 6-4 in 65 minutes, hitting five aces and winning 71 per cent of their service points, to advance to the quarter-finals. Bopanna, who today rose to career-best ninth in ATP doubles rankings, now has a career doubles win-loss record of 100-75 while Aisam's career statistics read 96-70.
