Rohan Bopanna and Jamie Murray have stormed into the semi-finals of the Monte Carlos Masters ATP tournament. They overcame Horacio Zeballos and Marcel Granollers with a match score of 7-6,7-6.
The match itself was extremely close and the stats prove the same. Both sides won 12 service games during the match with Bopanna/Murray winning 28 receiving points versus 24 of their opponents.
Both the games went into the tiebreaker and had similar scores of 10-8 and 10-8. Bopanna especially was playing a brilliant game today and was coordinating extremely well with Jamie Murray throughout the match.
