Miami:

Indian pair of Mahesh Bhupathi and Rohan Bopanna came from a set down to win 2-6 6-3 10-8 against Michael Llodra of France and Serbia's Nenad Zimonjic and move into the semifinals of the Sony Ericsson Open.

The sixth seeded "Indian Express" duo took an hour and eight minutes to beat their third seeded opponents.

Although there was not much to choose between the two teams but Bhupathi and Bopanna managed to held on to their nerves and win crucial points.

The Indian combo, who had recently won the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships, saved as many as four breakpoints out of six that the French-Serbian pair got.

While on their part, Bhupathi-Bopanna could cash in on just one out of the three breakpoints they got.

The Indians will next take on the winner of the other quarterfinal match between the Polish-Serbian duo of Lukasz Kubot-Janko Tipsarevic and Max Mirnyi of Belarus and Canada's Daniel Nestor.
