Bopanna in first Grand Slam semi-final since 2015 Wimbledon

Paris, May 31 (agency)

India’s Rohan Bopanna reached his first Grand Slam semi-final in seven years along with his Dutch partner M Middelkoop, who defeated Lloyd Glasspool and Henri Heliovara in the French Open men’s doubles quarterfinals.

Bopanna and Middlekoop registered 4-6, 6-4, 7-6 wins over Britain’s Glaspool and Finland’s Heliovara.

Bopanna had earlier reached the semi-finals at the 2015 Wimbledon with Romania’s Florin Mergia, where he was defeated by Jean-Julian Roger and Horia Tekau. Bopanna, 42, and Middelkup, 38, will now play 12th-seeded Marcello Arevalo and Jean-Julian Roger. After losing the first set, Bopanna and Middlekup made a strong comeback to win both the sets. They defeated Wimbledon champion pair Mate Pevich and Nikola Mektic on Saturday.
