London [U.K], June 23 (ANI): Indian tennis ace Rohan Bopanna and his Croatian partner Ivan Dodig will aim to book their place in the finals of the Aegon Championships when they take on French duo of Julien Benneteau and Edouard Roger-Vasselin in the men's double event later today. The Indo-Croatian duo stormed into the semi-finals of the Wimbledon warm-up event after battling past Australia's John Peers and Finland's Henri Kontinen. Bopanna and Dodig started the quarter-final clash strongly as they led 7-6 after the first game. However, the pair went down in the second before rebounding strongly to eventually clinch a 7-6, 4-6, 10-2 win over the Australian-Finnish duo in a thrilling encounter at the Queen's club. Earlier, India's Leander Paes and his Canadian partner Adil Shamasdin entered the finals of the tournament after registering a comfortable 6-4, 7-6 win over Australian pair of Luke Saville and John Millman. Paes and Shamasdin will now take on the British duo of Brydan Klein and Joe Salisbury on Saturday in the summit showdown. (ANI)
