Bhupathi-Bopanna book Tour Finals berth
India's Mahesh Bhupathi and Rohan Bopanna booked the final berth at the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals in London after advancing to the semi-finals of the BNP Paribas Masters here.
In a winner-take-all quarter-final yesterday, Bhupathi-Bopanna beat Poland’s Mariusz Fyrstenberg and Marcin Matkowski 6-7(5), 6-3, 10-4. They will now face Paul Hanley and Jonathan Marray.
Bhupathi and Bopanna will be making their team debut at the season finale. Bhupathi is a four-time runner-up at the event, losing in the final in 2010 (with Max Mirnyi) and in 1997, ’99 and 2000 with Leander Paes.
