Madrid:

The Indian team of Mahesh Bhupathi and Rohan Bopanna on Friday reached the semi-finals of the ATP Madrid Masters after scoring a hard-earned win over Aisam-ul-haq Qureshi and Jean-Julien Rojer, here.


The seventh seeded Indian pair edged past the Pak-Dutch combination 7-6 (2), 7-6(5) in the quarter-finals of the euro 3,973,695 clay court elite event.

Qureshi was Bopanna's partner in the 2011 season and the duo tasted quite a lot of success together as a team.

Bopanna parted ways with Qureshi to partner Bhupathi, with whom he is expected to play in the London Olympics.

Meanwhile, fifth seed Indo-Czech pair of Leander Paes Radek Stepanek reached the quarter-finals with a 6-3, 6-4 win over their unseeded French rivals Richard Gasquet and Gael Monfils in the second round on Thursday.
