The eighth seed Indian pair, playing on the same side of the net for the first time in a Tour event in more than two years, registered a convincing 6-3 6-2 victory in the match played last night, according to information received here. The pair, popularly known as 'The Indian Express', would now take on the winner of the tie between top seeded American brothers Bob and Mike Bryan and Jared Palmer (USA)/ Pavel Vizner (Czech Republic).
