Rohan Bopanna and Jonathan Erlich crashed out of the men's double event of the French Open after suffering a 4-6, 6-7 (10) defeat at the hands of Guillermo Garcia Lopez and Sergio Roitman.

After conceding the first set, the Indo-Israeli duo had a good chance to draw level as they were leading 4-1 at one stage but allowed the Spanish-Argetine pair to claw their back.

Guillermo and Sergio stretched the second set to a tie-breaker and converted their third match point to seal the fate of Bopanna and Erlich.

Indian men's doubles hopes now rest on veterans Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi who have paired with different partners.
