Bopanna-Qureshi in QF of Estoril Open

May 06, 2010 18:10 IST

Rohan Bopanna and Aisam-ul Haq Qureshi scripted a stunning come-from-behind victory over fourth seeds Colin Fleming and Ken Skupski to book a berth in the doubles quarter-finals of the ATP Estoril Open in Portugal.

The unseeded Indo-Pakistani pair overcame a sluggish start to beat their British opponents 2-6, 6-3, 10-5 in the opening round of the euro 450,000 clay-court event, on Wednesday.

They take on the local wild card pair of Pedro Sousa and Leonardo Tavares next.

Sousa and Tavares beat Oscar Hernandez of Spain and Russia's Igor Kunitsyn 6-2, 6-3 in their first round match.
