The 2008 Olympic gold medalists defeated doubles specialists Rohan Bopanna and Aisam-ul-haq Qureshi in the first round, followed by knocking out Ernests Gulbis and Milos Raonic Monday night. They would do so once again against Paes/Stepanek, needing a match tiebreaker, 6-3 6-7 (6) 10-4, to advance to the semifinals of the 2014 BNP Paribas Open.
