India's Rohan Bopanna and his Australian partner Matthew Ebden entered the men's doubles third round at the US Open with a straight-set victory over Kazakhstan's Andrey Golubev and Russian Roman Safiullin.
The sixth seeded Indo-Australian pair won 6-3, 6-3 on Friday and would meet the unseeded British team of Henry Patten and Julian Cash in the pre quarter-final.
By entering the last 16 stage, the duo also ensured at least USD 58,000 prize money for themselves.
The experienced Bopanna-Ebden pairing raised its game when it got break points, converting three out of seven.
The opposition team couldn't even earn one break point.
