Hangzhou: India’s mixed doubles team of Rohan Bopanna and Rutja Bhosale on Friday paved their way to the final of the Asian Games tennis tournament after registering a 6-1, 3-6, 10-4 against Chinese Taipei’s Yu-hsiou Hsu and Hao-ching Chang in the semifinal.

The Indian pair secured the initial set in a swift 28 minutes, gaining an early advantage.

However, in the second set, the third-seeded Chinese Taipei duo made a comeback, equalising the match and prompting a 10-point tie-breaker set.
