Bopanna-Qureshi storm into QF; Sania-Vesnia out
The India-Pakistan pair of Rohan Bopanna and Aisam-Ul-Haq-Qureshi marched into the quarter-finals of the US Open with a 6-2, 6-3 victory over Paul Hanley and Dick Norman in a third round men's doubles match here on Sunday.
Sania Mirza, however, had to taste defeat with her Russian partner Elena Vesnina. The sixth seed pair bowed out of the competition after losing to the Czech duo of Iveta Benesova and Barbora Zahlavova Strycova 6-7, 6-7 in the third of the women's doubles.
Bopanna-Qureshi, last year's finalists and seeded fifth in the current edition, got the better of Hanley and Norman in 60 minutes.
