Rohan Bopanna-Matthew Ebden Advance To Miami Open Quarterfinals

Indian tennis player Rohan Bopanna, alongside his Australian partner Matthew Ebden, showcased their skill at the Miami Open, securing a hard-fought victory against Hugo Nys and Jan Zielinski, propelling them into the men’s doubles quarterfinals. The formidable duo endured a challenging battle lasting one hour and thirty-nine minutes before clinching a 7-5, 7-6 (3) win over Monaco’s Nys and Poland’s Zielinski in the ATP Masters 1000 event on Monday night.

Despite facing formidable opposition, the 43-year-old Bopanna and Ebden exhibited remarkable resilience and skill throughout the match. With four aces and 84% first serve points won their partnership demonstrated their dominance on the court, highlighting their daunting presence in the men’s doubles circuit.

It was Bopanna and Ebden who seized a crucial opportunity, breaking Nys and Zielinski in the 11th game to claim a pivotal lead and subsequently secure the opening set. In the second set, neither team yielded serve until the match reached a climactic tiebreaker. A double blunder by Nys and Zielinski proved costly at an important point, allowing the Indo-Australian pair to take advantage of the mistake and win the set and the match.

John Patrick Smith of Australia and Sem Verbeek of the Netherlands will be their next opponents.
