Fourth seeds Mahesh Bhupathi and Max Mirnyi overcame a late resistance from Arnaud Clement and Nicolas Mahut to advance to the second round of the men's doubles event of the US Open here.

Bhupathi, who was a finalist here last year, and his Belarussian partner beat the French pair 6-1 6-4 in the opening round match, last night.

Meanwhile, Rohan Bopanna and his Chinese partner Zi Yan bowed out of the mixed doubles event with a 2-6 4-6 first round defeat against America's Rajeev Ram and Aravane Rezai of France.

Bopanna had yesterday made it to the second round of men's doubles along with his Pakistani partner Aisam-ul-Haq Quershi.
