Bhupathi-Stepanek in last 8

June 04, 2007 20:59 IST

Mahesh Bhupathi and Radek Stepanek stormed into the men's doubles quarter-finals but Rupesh Roy was knocked out of the boys' singles in the first round at the French Open in Paris on Monday.

Bhupathi and Stepanek shocked seventh seeds Jonathan Erlich and Andy Ram of Israel 7-6(4), 6-4 in the third round to book a last-eight berth.

The Indo-Czech pair could face second seeds Jonas Bjorkman of Sweden and Max Mirnyi of Belarus, who are up against Jeff Coetlee of South Africa and Rogier Wassen of the Netherlands.

Eighteen-year-old Roy went down to Ricardas Berankis of Lithuania 6-7(5), 2-6 to bow out of contention.
