Incheon: India blanked Nepal 3-0 to sail into the quarterfinals of men's tennis team event in the 17th Asian Games here on Sunday.

Yuki Bhambri did not drop a game en route to a crushing straight sets 6-0 6-0 win over Jeetendra Pariyar to seal the issue in India's favour, after Sanam Singh posted a comfortable 6-0 6-1 victory over Abhishek Bastola at the Yeorumul Tennis Courts.

In the inconsequential doubles tie, the Indian duo of Divij Sharan and Saketh Myneni registered a comfortable straight sets 6-0 6-0 win over Santosh Khatri and Sonam Dawa, thrashing their opponents in only 35 minutes.

The sixth seeded Indians will face top seeds Kazakhstan in their last-eight match. Kazakhstan defeated Hong Kong in their second round match 3-0.

Yuki needed just 37 minutes to polish off his hapless opponent while Sanam 40 minutes to see off Bastola, giving India an easy win.
