Bopanna-Qureshi stun Bhupathi-Mirnyi

August 28, 2010 16:05 IST

Continuing their red-hot form, Rohan Bopanna and Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi advanced to their third ATP Tour final of the season with an upset win over second seeds Mahesh Bhupathi and Max Mirnyi at the Pilot Pen Tennis tournament in New Haven.

The unseeded Indo-Pak pair beat the Indo-Belarusian combo 6-4, 6-4 in the semi-finals of the US$ 663,750 hard court US Open series event.

They will take on Wimbledon finalists Robert Lindstedt and Horia Tecau, who defeated Julian Knowle and Andy Ram 6-4, 6-3 in the title clash.

They had reached the final of the France event in May and Casablanca in April earlier in the year.

Bopanna also reached the Atlanta final early in the Olympus US Open Series with Kristof Vliegen.
