The duo of Rohan Bopanna and Denis Shapovalov are back to their winning ways as they started off their Open 13 Provence 2020 campaign with a blast against the all-Italian duo of Jannik Sinner and Simone Bolelli. The Indo-Canadian pair resisted fiercely and came back from a set down to seize the match and storm into the quarter-finals of the ATP 250 tournament.
Both Bopanna and Shapovalov, who is seeded fourth in the single's draw, were keenly focussed throughout their opening round match. After a successful outing at Rotterdam Open, where they finished as semi-finalists, Bopanna and Shapovalov are hungry for more. The challenge of Sinner and Bolelli was overcome in three sets as the Indo-Canadian pair won, 6-7, 6-3, 10-6. They will now face Denmark's Frederik Nielsen who has joined forces with Germany's Tim Putz, in their quarter-final clash.
Frederik Nielsen has been a former Wimbledon doubles champion while Putz has been an exceptional player in doubles. However, Bopanna, with ample experience up his sleeve and the talented Canadian by his side, should not face much trouble overcoming the challenge of Nielsen and Putz and be onward on their way to the semi-finals.
