Rohan Bopanna and Croatian partner Ivan Dodig produced a spirited performance as they bounced back from a set down to progress through to the quarter-finals of the Aegon Championships.

After comfortably winning the first set, the Indo-Croatian pair went down in the second set before they rebounded strongly to register a 6-3, 6-7, 10-7 win over the Australian-American team of Thanasi Kokkinakis and Kyle Edmund in a thrilling opening-round clash at the Queen’s Club.

Bopanna and Dodig will now lock horns with the Finnish-Australian duo Henri Kontinen and John Peers for a place in the semi-finals of the men’s doubles event.

In another clash, India’s Leander Paes and Canada’s Adil Shamasdin survived an early scare against Australian duo of John-Patrick Smith and Matt Reid to book their place in last-eight.

Paes and Shamsdin rebounded strongly from their first-set defeat to post a 4-6, 6-3, 12-10 win over the Australians in their opening round of the $127,000 grass court event.

They will next face Belarus’ Andrei Vasilevski and Chile’s Hans Podlipnik-Castillo.
