Bopanna might not have ended up with the title but it surely is a very promising performance ahead of the US Open, beginning on August 28.

The Indian, who won the 2017 French Open mixed doubles title, has reached the US Open men's doubles final in 2010. It is the only Slam in men's doubles where he has made it to the summit clash.

Pumped up by this effort at the Canada Masters, Bopanna will surely look to reach the US Open final again and maybe try and go one better this time!
