Bopanna advances, Sania loses in doubles

Watson and Kontinen embrace Ivan Dodig and Sania Mirza following the two-set clash

Watson and Finn Henri Kontinen are the defending champions and could yet make it back-to-back titles after a 6-7 (4/7) 6-4 7-5 win over Rohan Bopanna of India and Canadian Gaby Dabrowski.

The difference between the two teams was extremely marginal with Kontinen/Watson taking taking 109 points to 104 for Bopanna and Dabrowski who had come into the match without dropping a set or even being broken. Bopanna and Dabrowski, seeded 10th, beat the Croatian pair of Nikola Mektic and Ana Konjuh 7-6 (5) 6-2 to reach the last-eight stage in just over an hour.

Bopanna has already exited from the men's doubles while Sania Mirza has also been knocked out of both the women's doubles and mixed doubles events with her respective partners.

The final score of a thrilling clash that lasted for nearly two hours read 7-6 (7-4), 4-6, 5-7, in favour of Kontinen and Watson.

It wasn't a good day for Indians in the junior events either.

Murray and Martina Hingis are the top seeds and defeated all-British pair Ken Skupski and Jocelyn Rae 6-4 6-4.
