India’s top doubles player Rohan Bopanna, along with his partner Denis Shapovalov of Canada, advanced to the quarter-finals of the ongoing Paris Masters after a straight-sets victory over the American-Argentine pair of Manuel Gonzalez and Austin Krajicek in their Round of 16 match.

Bopanna-Shapovalov defeated their American-Argentine opponent 6-1, 6-3 in a match which lasted for an hour on Thursday evening.

The Indian-Canadian pair fired eight aces and committed one double fault. However, they saved eight out of 13 break points and won four of 13.

Bopanna and Shapovalov had earlier registered a 6-4, 7-5 win over Benoit Paire and Fernando Verdasco to move into the pre-quarters.

They will now face the Russian duo of Karen Khachanov and Andrey Rublov on Friday for a place in the semi-finals.
