Bopanna-Qureshi enter men`s doubles 2nd round

Melbourne: India`s Rohan Bopanna and Pakistan`s Aisam-Ul-Haq Qureshi outplayed the Brazilian pair of Franco Ferreiro and Andre Sa 6-3, 6-0 to advance to the second round.

Meanwhile, "Indo-Pak Express", the runners-up of last year`s US Open, had a very easy outing.

The 10th-seeded pair hardly spared a chance for its unseeded opponents to pose any threat, as they breezed away to seal the match in their favour in just 49 minutes.

Bopanna-Qureshi will next play Frenchmen Jeremy Chardy and Arnaud Clement.
