Indian veteran Rohan Bopanna and his Australian partner Matthew Ebden booked their spot in the semifinals of the men’s doubles event at the French Open on Thursday after a hard-fought battle against Belgian duo Sander Gille and Joran Vliegen.

The match, played on Court Suzanne Lenglen in Paris, saw the Indo-Australian pair prevail 7-6(3), 5-7, 6-1 after two and a half hours of intense action.

Bopanna and Ebden got off to a strong start, edging the opening set tie-break 7-3. However, Gille and Vliegen showed great determination to level the match by taking the second set 7-5.

In the deciding third set, it was the 43-year-old Bopanna and Ebden who raised their level. They broke their opponents’ serve twice and wrapped up the set 6-1 to seal their place in the last four.

This victory sets up a semifinal rematch against 11th seeds Simone Bolelli and Andrea Vavassori of Italy. Bopanna and Ebden defeated the same Italian pair in the Australian Open final back in January, winning 7-6(7-0), 7-5.
