Melbourne: India's Rohan Bopanna and Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi of Pakistan entered the third round of men's doubles in Australian Open after a hard-fought three-set victory over the Frenchmen Jeremy Chardy and Arnaud Clement 6-3, 4-6, 6-4 here on Friday.
The 10th-seeded Asian duo had just one break in the first set to bag it 6-3, but the pair lost the momentum in the next, losing it 4-6.
The final and the deciding set saw both the teams fight it hard to reign supreme but it was Bopanna-Qureshi, who finally managed to prevail with a 6-4 win to seal the match in little over one and a half hours. The pair will next play France's Michael Llodra and Nenad Zimonjic of Serbia.
Meanwhile, the Indian duo of Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi will face Spain's Feliciano Lopez and Juan Monaco of Argentina in their second round match on Saturday. — PTI
