The Indo-Romanian pair of men’s doubles, seventh-seeded Bopanna- Florin Mergea pair has made it to the semi-finals defeating their opponents, the top seeded Mike and Bob Bryan and with this sensational win over the favourites, the Indo-Romanian pair has kept the hope for the men’s doubles trophy pretty strong and bright.
Bopanna-Mergea pair secured 7-5 4-6 6-7 (9-11) 6-7 5-7 win over the most successful men's doubles pair ever with 16 Grand Slam titles, Bob and Mike Bryan. Notably, the Bryan pair had also won three Wimbledon crowns out of the 16 Grand Slams and this sudden defeat in the quarterfinals has certainly left the pair feeling shattered and shocked. The Bopanna-Mergea will now face fourth-seeds Jean-Julien Rojer of Netherlands and Horia Tecau of Romania.

At the same time, Russian fourth seed Maria Sharapova defeated Coco Vandeweghe in 6-3 6-7 (3-7) 6-2 sets. With this win of Sharapova, it is certain now that Serena and Sharapova are coming vis-a-vis.
Serena expressed her quarterfinal experience by saying, "It was really fun out there. I was smiling at one point and I saw Victoria smiling as well. We both really enjoyed it. It's been up and down, up and down, but somehow I'm still alive. I'm just happy to be here."
