Good match so far, it's a shame that the match had to be suspended to due bad light.

The Bryan's started the match better breaking for a 2-1 lead but the Indo-Pak Exprsss hit back to level at 4-4. Bopanna and Qureshi dominated the TB taking it 7-2.

Bopanna and Qureshi started very well breaking in the 1st game of the 2nd set and then went 2-0 but they Bryan's won the next 5 games and they served it out to take the 2nd set 6-3.

The Bryan's carried the momentum in the 3rd breaking for a 2-1 lead but the Indo-Pak Express hit straight back to make it 2-2. The Bryan's had more break points but couldn't convert due to good serving from Bopanna and Qureshi!! Before play stopped Bopanna and Qureshi had 15-30 on the Bryan serve but the twins got out of that tricky service game.

4th on court 1 tomorrow.

2nd ATP Title for the Indo-Pak Express!! :)

It looks like it was a tough match, the 1st set was dominated by serve, Bopanna and Qureshi did have 3 BP in the 1st set but couldn't convert and it went to a TB where the 1st point against serve came at 9-8 by taking the point, it gave Bopanna and Qureshi the 1st set.
Haase and Raonic had 2 SP in the TB.

The 2nd set also was going by serve until Haase and Raonic broke the Qureshi serve after he was 40-0, winning 4 points on the serve and then closing it out to Love.

Haase and Raonic went into the MTB with confidence taking a *5-1 lead with 2 MB but the Indo-Pak Epxress came back, making it *5-4 then Haase and Raonic held there 2 serves to take a 7-4* lead, the Indo-Pak Express got the 2nd MB back to level it at 7-7. Bopanna and Qureshi missed their 1st MP at 9-8* but Raonic DF at 9-9 to let the Indo-Pak Express have MP on their serve and they took it!! :) :)

Next is Eastbourne for Bopanna and Qureshi, hopefully they can win their 3rd ATP Title as a team! :)

2nd meeting in 3 days.

Great comeback from Bopanna & Qureshi after being 2-6 2-5* down! :woohoo:

Melo & Soares served for the match twice and also had a MP at 6-2 *5-4, 40-40 (Deciding Point) but couldn't convert due to a BH winner DTL from Qureshi.

The TB and the MTB was one sided!

Bopanna & Qureshi will either face M.Fyrstenberg & M.Matkowski or J.I.Chela & A.Sa in the QF.

A/B cud take on Melo/Soares for the third time in three weeks if they win their first round matches.

A first round match-up between Eric Butorac/Bruno Soares vs Marius Fyrstenberg/Marcin Matkowsky means the loser will have to reach at least the Final of the last tournament of the season( which is a masters tournament) to entertain any hopes of qualifying for the year end W.T.F.
Our team is sitting pretty except for a last minute hiccup!!

Great result for Bopanna/Qureshi in Paris, I honestly didn't expect them to beat the No.2 seeds and then get past another great team (M.Mirnyi/D.Nestor) to earn their TMS final debut!

They have good chance for the title, too bad no coverage found...I want to watch this >.<

And congratulations to them (and ImmzB :p) on qualifying for the WTF, as part of the world's top 8 teams.

0-3 at this years World Tour Finals! :sad: All the best to Qureshi in 2012 and the same said to Bopanna!

Qureshi confirmed afterwards that Bopanna would play with Mahesh Bhupathi in 2012 at the Indians bid to compete at the Olympic Games in London in July. "I respect Rohan's decision to play with Mahesh, with a view to competing at the Olympics," said Qureshi. "I hope I will be there too."

http://www.indianexpress.com/news/bopannas-decision-to-part-ways-came-as-a-shock-to-me-aisam/881727/1

Bopanna’s decision to part ways came as a shock to me: Aisam

Pakistan’s Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi, one half of the Indo-Pak pairing, tells The Indian Express why he’ll miss playing with the Indian. Excerpts:

You won your first Masters title with Bopanna earlier this month but now you have to look for a new partner.

* The partnership is over. For me, I would have liked to continue because I had such a great year with Rohan. But I didn’t have any say in the decision. I was just told to find a partner. It definitely came as a shock to me. I know the Olympics is a big thing and it is a huge goal for me as well but my thinking was that Rohan will want to play with either Mahesh (Bhupathi) or Leander (Paes) for about three to four weeks before the Olympics. I was not expecting it will be a matter of changing partners for the whole year.

Will it take time for you to adjust to the new set-up?

* When I was told about this two-three months back, I had two choices. I could either feel sorry or move on. And I decided that I have worked really hard for the last ten years to be in the top-10 (doubles) and even in this new scenario I need to do my best to maintain that. Ever since I started taking doubles seriously, I have played only with Rohan, so it will be tough and a new start for me.

What aspects of your partnership with Bopanna will you miss?

* A lot of things. The main thing about our pairing was that we got along so well off court too. It was almost as if tennis was secondary. We understood each other and that translated into complementing each other on court. I was more of a serve-and-volley player and brought finesse into our game, while Bops was a powerhouse with his big serve and big forehand and backhand. We have known each other for 15 years. So I hope it is not going to harm our friendship and we can still hang out together.

The end of the partnership also means end of the Indo-Pak Express.

* I’m very proud of what we have achieved together off court. There are very few teams that have global recognition as doubles pair on the Tour — the Bryan Brothers, Paes-Bhupathi, Nestor-Mirnyi — and in two years we had managed to have an impact. Being an ambassador of peace for my country, having the Stop War, Start Tennis initiative and winning the Arthur Ashe Humanitarian award were highs for me.

Both Bopanna and Bhupathi are ad court players. Do you think that could be a problem?

* That is something they will have to deal with. There will be some mix and match initially to see what suits them and either of them will definitely have to make adjustments.

Can we see the Indo-Pak Express coming together after the Olympics?

* No, if things are going well for me with Jean-Julien Roger, I will have no reason to switch. How can I leave him in the lurch? My partnerships are very sentimental for me.
