Third seeds Mahesh Bhupathi and Rohan Bopanna crashed out of the Aegon Championships after suffering a straight-set defeat at the hands of top seeds Bob and Mike Bryan in the semifinals in London.

Bhupathi and Bopanna went down 6-4 6-2 in a lopsided contest.

It was a contest totally dominated by the Bryan brothers, who did not concede a single break point through the match.

In the opening day, the Bryans broke the Indians once to get the crucial edge and pocket the set in no time.

In the second set, the Bryans' domination only increased and they broke Bhupathi and Bopanna twice to close the set and the match in their favour.
