Bhupathi-Vesnina in mixed doubles semifinals

July 01, 2011 22:28 IST

Fourth seeds Mahesh Bhupathi and Elina Vesnina advanced to the semifinals of the Wimbledon mixed doubles event after registering a straight sets 6-4, 6-1 win over Israel's Jonathan Erlich and Shahar Peer in London on Friday.

Erlich and Peer were no match for the in-form Indo-Russia duo who needed exactly an hour to see them off on court number 12. 

Bhupathi and Vesnina, who dominated proceedings from the word go, committed no double faults as compared to the four by Erlich and Peer, who also committed four unforced errors to the winners' two.

Bhupathi and Vesnina served six winners as compared to six by the unseeded Israeli pair.
