ATP NEWS | 12 August 2011
Defending champions and top seeds Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan moved into the semi-finals after fifth-seeded Rohan Bopanna and Aisam-Ul-Haq Qureshi retired at 3-3 in the first set. Bopanna rolled his left ankle and could not continue.
The Bryans are aiming to win their fourth title at the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 event in Canada, having triumphed in 2002, ’06 and ’10. They’ll play Tomas Berdych and Florian Mayer for a berth in the championship match.
The Czech-German duo defeated brothers Andy Murray and Jamie Murray 6-4, 6-4 in 65 minutes. Berdych and Mayer, playing their first tournament together since the 2005 US Open, won 44 per cent of their return points, breaking the Scots three times to advance.
