New York City/UNI: The Indo-Canadian pair of Rohan Bopanna and Denis Shapovalov advanced to the second round of the US Open after beating the American pair of Ernesto Escobedo and Noah Rubin in straight sets in men's doubles first round here.

The Indo-Canadian pair will now face sixth seeds Kevin Krawietz and Andreas Mies.

Bopanna is the only surviving Indian in the tournament after the exits of Sumit Nagal and Divij Sharan.
