sports Updated: Apr 01, 2011 01:21 IST

India's Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi progressed while compatriot Rohan Bopanna and his Pakistan's partner Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi faltered in the men's doubles quarterfinal of the Sony Ericsson Open on Thursday.

The third-seeded Paes and Bhupathi overcame sixth seeds Michael Llodra of France and Nenad Zimonjic of Serbia 6-3, 6-7(4), 10-7 on Wednesday.

In the semifinals, the 'Indian Express' will meet the unseeded Oliver Marach of Austria and Serb Janko Tipsarevic, who knocked out Bopanna and Qureshi 6-4, 7-6(8). Bhupathi and Paes reached the final here last year, but stood on opposite sides of the net, with Paes and Czech Lukas Dlouhy defeating Bhupathi and Max Mirnyi of Belarus for the title.
