Rohan Bopanna

Rohan Bopanna is one of the most successful players to come out of India. The 40-year-old’s name is mentioned amongst the likes of Leander Paes and Sania Mirza. 

Bopanna just advanced to the finals of the European Open after defeating the 5th seeds of the tournament. He has done so alongside his doubles-partner, Matwe Middelkoop of the Netherlands. This duo beat Belgians Joran Vliegen and Sander Gille to qualify for the finals of the European Open in Antwerp, Belgium. The scoreline of 6-4, 3-6, 8-10 reflects the rigorous fight these players put up.  

This season’s end is right around the corner. Every player is seemingly salivating at the opportunity to play more tennis. Boppana and Middelkoop have proven to be quite successful doubles-partners. For instance, they vanquished Jamie Murray and Neal Skupski of United Kingdom with 6-4, 6-4 in the 1st round. In the vein of that, the straight-sets win over the 4th seeds of the tournament only succeeds to emphasise the prowess of Bopanna and Middelkoop.

Rohan Boppana’s Past Results

Gabriela Dabrowski, Rohan Bopanna

Bopanna has years’ worth of experience in winning under his belt. One of his most successful results came about at the U.S Open in 2010, where he reached the finals. Eventually, he lost out to the Bryan Brothers. He did so alongside doubles-partner Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi. 

In addition, Boppana was also placed 4th alongside Sania Mirza whilst representing India at the Rio Olympics in 2016. Above all, the Indian champ has already laid claim to a Grand Slam title. He won the French Open in 2017 with Canadian partner Gabriela Dabrowski. 

Moreover, Rohan won four of his Masters 1000 titles after competing in eight finals for the same. 

He has continued his way up a bright path and is chasing his 2nd ATP tour crown this year. Bopanna began the year with a triumph at the Qatar Open. He lifted the title with Wesley Koolhof. The pair beat Stan Wawrinka en route to their victory and will hopefully end it that way too.

Bopanna and Middelkoop will be seen in action later today. They will try to fend off the 2nd seeds John Peers and Michael Venus in the finals. Bopanna began this year with success. Hopefully, he’ll end it on the same note.
