Goodbye!

That was a brutal domination by Bopanna and Roger-Vasselin in that tie-break! Absolutely did not give the top seeds any space to breathe!

The 13th seeds were the better team right from the beginning. And, despite giving up their break advantage in the second set, they never allowed the top seeds to get a set. 

This big win will give Bopanna and Roger-Vasselin tremendous amounts of confidence as they go deeper into the draw.
