The fifth seed Indian duo, which got a bye in the first round, beat the Cyprus-Scot combo 6-3, 7-6 (5) in one hour and 12 minutes in the pre-quarter-final round.

The second set was stretched to the tie-breaker as Murray and Baghdatis fought well to save five break-points that Bhupathi and Bopanna created.

They are unseeded and face the French pair of Julien Benneteau and Nicolas Mahut.
