Rohan Bopanna of India and Matthew Ebden of Australia advanced to the Wimbledon second round by defeating the Argentine team of Guillermo Duran and Tomas Etcheverry after surviving a scare in the tennis match.
In their opening encounter, which lasted two hours and twelve minutes, the sixth-seeded Indo-Australian couple defeated the tenacious Argentine pair 6-2 6-7 (5-7) 7-6 (10-8) via cunning.
The unseeded British team of Jacob Fearnley and Johannus Monday will be the next opponent for the 43-year-old Rohan Bopanna and 35-year-old Matthew Ebden at Wimbledon, who earlier this year won two doubles titles on the ATP Tour.
In February, Bopanna and Ebden won the Qatar Open, and in March, the Indian thus became the oldest winner of an ATP 1000 Master Series competition at Indian Wells in the United States.
Daniel Nestor, a Canadian who won the Cincinnati Masters title in 2015 at the age of 42, set a previous record that Bopanna recently broke.
On Saturday, Bopanna will compete in the mixed doubles alongside Gabriela Dabrowski of Canada. The unseeded team of Ivan Dodig of Croatia and Latisha Chan of Chinese Taipei will be the opponents for the sixth-seeded pair, which won the French Open championship in 2017.
Yuki Bhambri and Saketh Myneni will compete against Alejandro Davidovich Fokina of Spain and Adrian Mannarino of France, while Jeevan Nedunchezhiyan and N Sriram Balaji will compete against second-seeded Austin Krajicek of the USA and Ivan Dodig.
