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.

Bopanna and Shapovalov beat American opponents Escobedo and Rubin by 6-2 6-4 in their tournament opener that lasted one hour and 22 minutes on Friday.

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.

Sumit crashed out in the second round after losing to world no 3 and second seed Dominic Thiem of Austria, while Sharan and his Serbian partner Nikola Cacic were knocked out in the opening round of the men’s doubles event by eighth seeds Nikola Mektic and Wesley Koolhof.
