Paris: India’s Rohan Bopanna and his Croatian partner Franko Skugor advanced to the quarter-finals of the French Open after receiving a walkover from their opponents on Sunday.

The Indo-Croat duo got a walkover in their men’s doubles pre-quarter-final clash against the Netherlands’ Matwe Middelkoop and Marcelo Arevalo of El Salvador.

Bopanna and Skugor will now face the Spanish pairing of Pablo Andujar and Pedro Martinez in the quarter-finals.

The unseeded Bopanna and Skugor had notched up a straight-set win over Americans Frances Tiafo and Nicholas Monroe in the second round earlier this week.

The 41-year-old Bopanna, ranked 40 in the world, is not defending any points this year at the Roland Garros.

The Indian needs to earn points since this is his last chance to improve his ranking. The rankings on 10 June will be considered for entry into the Tokyo Olympics.
