Washington: Rohan Bopanna and Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi advanced to doubles quarter-finals of the ATP Legg Mason classic tournament after a hard earned win over Martin Damm and Oliver Marach here.

The Indo-Pak pair laboured to a 7-5 4-6 10-3 win over the Czech-Austrian combination in the first round of the USD 1,165,500 hard court event.

However, Bopanna and Qureshi have a tough job at hand as they will take on second seed Americans Mike and Bob Bryan in the quarter-finals.

Bopanna and Qureshi had lost to Bryan Brothers at last week`s Farmers Classic, where the American pair had created a record of most title wins with their 62nd trophy.
