Paris: India`s Rohan Bopanna and his Pakistani partner Aisam-Ul-Haq Qureshi today notched up a straight-set victory over Britain`s Colin Fleming and Jamie Murray to reach the quarterfinals of the ATP Paris Masters.
The Indo-Pak pair beat Fleming and Murray 6-4, 6-3 in the pre-quarters.
Bopanna-Qureshi, who got a bye in the opening round, will next face the winners of the match between Michael Llodra-Nenad Zimonic and Eric Butorac-Julien Jean.
The seventh seeded Bopanna-Qureshi pair saved two out of the third break points and also committed just three double faults compared to their rivals` six.
Ace Indian pair of Mahesh Bhupathi and Leander Paes had crashed out of the tournament yesterday.
I`ve always said the person who wins the world championship this year is the person who does the best job on the circuit, but that does not seem the way it is at the moment.
