Bopanna-Qureshi in Legg Mason quarters

August 05, 2010 17:45 IST

Rohan Bopanna and Aisam-ul Haq Qureshi advanced to quarter-finals of the ATP Legg Mason classic after a hard-earned win over Martin Damm and Oliver Marach in Washington on Wednesday.

The Indo-Pak pair laboured to a 7-5, 4-6, 10-3 win over the Czech-Austrian combination in the first round of the US $1,165,500 hard court event.

However, Bopanna and Qureshi have a tough job at hand as they will take on second seed Americans Mike and Bob Bryan in the quarter-finals.

Bopanna and Qureshi had lost to the Bryan Brothers at last week's Farmers Classic, where the American pair had created a record of most title wins with their 62nd trophy.
