Pune boy Arjun Kadhe and his Peruvian partner Jorge Brian Panta Herreros stormed into the quarterfinals of the boys' doubles at the French Open with a 6-3, 7-6 (7/4) victory over third seeds Julien Cagnina and Luke Saville here on Wednesday.
Ninteen-year-old Kadhe and Herreros dominated the first set, wrapping it up in just 20 minutes.
However, their higher ranked opponents were never going to cave in and fought back in the second as both teams managed to break their opponents twice.
Just when it looked like the Belgian-Australian duo were getting into their rhythm, Kadhe and his partner raised their game in the tie-breaker to set up a last eight clash against Australia's Andrew Harris and Nick Kyrgios.
Kadhe, who trains under Hemant Bendrey in Pune, is currently the Indian national doubles champion.
