ATP NEWS | 18 August 2011
After reaching four straight tour-level finals, highlighted by their title win in Bastad, No. 6 seeds Robert Lindstedt and Horia Tecau lost in their opening match for a second straight week. They fell to Czechs Tomas Berdych and Radek Stepanek 6-2, 6-7(3), 10-6.
UPDATE - August 19, 2011
In men’s doubles, the top-seeded Bryan brothers, who won this year’s Wimbledon title and claimed the Cincinnati title in ’02, ’06 and ’10, advanced over the Polish pair of Mariusz Fyrstenberg and Marcin Matkowski 7-6(5) 7-6(3) to make the semifinals.
Up next for the Bryans are the No. 3 seeds Mahesh Bhupathi and Leander Paes, who were finalists at the Australian Open earlier this year and the 2001 Cincinnati titlists. They earned a walk over to the semifinals after Berdych withdrew from the match with partner Radek Stepanek due to a right shoulder injury.
