Rohan Bopanna and Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi reached the semifinals of a Grand Slam for the first time in their career after recording a thrilling 7-5, 7-6 (2) win over 10th seeds Wesley Moodie and Dick Norman in the US Open men’s doubles quarterfinals here.

Reaching the Wimbledon quarter-finals this year was the best ever performance for the 16th seed Indo-Pak pair before this memorable win. Bopanna is the only Indian left in the draw and was delighted with his good run in the last Grand Slam of the season.

“I can’t describe the range of emotions we went through today, it was such a closely fought match and to come out victorious in the end, it’s just unbelievable,” Boppana said.

The duo now face the unseeded pair of Eduardo Schwank and Horacio Zeballos for a place in the finals. The Argentines, who knocked out Mahesh Bhupathi and Max Mirnyi in the second round, will be a difficult pair to handle said the Coorgi.
