Bopanna-Qureshi, Paes-Black in US Open quarters

By The Assam Tribune

NEW YORK, Sept 6 (IANS) - India's Rohan Bopanna and Pakistan's Aisam Ul-Haq-Qureshi stunned second-seeded Daniel Nestor of Canada and Nenad Zimonjic of Serbia 6-3, 6-4 in the US Open tennis third round to enter their second successive Grand Slam quarterfinals.

Bopanna and Qureshi, who made their first quarterfinal at Wimbledon earlier in the year, next face 10th-seeded South Africa's Wesley Moodie and Dick Norman of Belgium, who dumped Brazilians Marcelo Melo and Bruno Soares 6-2, 6-2.

The India-Pakistan pair, seeded 16th here, have never won a US Open match together prior to this year's campaign.

In the mixed doubles, second-seeded Leander Paes of India and his Zimbabwean partner Cara Black cruised to the quarterfinals with a 6-4, 6-1, win over Estonia's Kaia Kanepi and Robert Lindstedt of Sweden, who had shocked fourth-seeded Mahesh Bhupathi and Daniela Hantuchova.

Paes and Black next play Anna-Lena Groenefeld of Germany and Mark Knowles of Bahamas.
