Shanghai, China

Matt Ebden and Indian partner Rohan Bopanna are proving why they are one of the world’s best teams at the Shanghai Masters.

The fourth-seeded pair made light work of world No.16 Jean-Julien Rojer and world No.17 Marcelo Arevalo in the quarterfinals, romping to a 6-4 6-2 victory.

World No.8 Ebden and world No.7 Bopanna fired 10 aces and did not lose a service game in the 61-minute encounter.

This propels them into their third semifinal of the season at ATP Masters 1000 level.

They’ll now face a French duo, world No.42 Sadio Doumbia and world No.43 Fabien Reboul, for a place in the final.

Australian Rinky Hijikata, who is partnering Brit Cameron Norrie, features in the other semifinal.

It is the first time in the tournament’s 14-year history that two Australians have advanced to the doubles semifinals.
