    Default Bhupathi-Bopanna pair in Paris Masters final

    The Indian pair of Mahesh Bhupathi and Rohan Bopanna stood just win away from for its second ATP men`s doubles title together this season after advancing to the BNP Paribas Masters final here.

    Fifth seeds Bhupathi and Bopanna defeated Paul Hanley and Jonathan Marray 7-5, 6-3. The Indians saved all five break points faced on serve while capitalising on two of their opportunities to emerge triumphant.

    Bhupathi and Bopanna will be attempting to win their second title of the season following their triumph at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships.

    They were finalists earlier this year at a pair of ATP World Tour Masters 1000 tournaments -- the Western and Southern Open in Cincinnati and the Shanghai Rolex Masters.

    They will be up against seventh seeds Aisam-Ul-Haq Qureshi and Jean-Julien Rojer in the finals. Qureshi and Rojer rallied past Marin Cilic and Marcelo Melo 0-6, 6-4, 11-9 in their semifinal clash.

    They are through to their third final of the season after lifting trophies at the Estoril Open and Gerry Weber Open in Halle.

    Qureshi is bidding for a successful title defence in Paris, having captured it last year with Bopanna. Rojer will contest his first ATP World Tour Masters 1000 final.

    Default Mahesh Bhupathi-Rohan Bopanna win Paris Masters

    Mahesh Bhupathi and Rohan Bopanna clinched the Paris Master, their second title of the year, after scoring a hard-fought win over Aisam-ul-haq Qureshi and Jean-Julien Rojer on Sunday.

    The fifth seed Indian pair struggled past the Pakistan-Dutch combination 7-6 (6) 6-3 in the summit clash, lasting one hour and 24 minutes.

    Bhupathi and Bopanna had won the Dubai ATP event and ended runners-up at Cincinnati and Shanghai.

    The Indians could not convert a single breakpoint of the six chances in the opening set but held nerves in the tiebreaker to take the lead.

    They saved a crucial break chance in the second set and cashed in on both the chances on opponents’ serve to seal the win.
