Mahesh Bhupathi and partner Mark Knowles did not have to do anything to enter the quarter-finals in the US $2,615,000 ATP Rogers Masters, as they got a walk over from their opponents in the second round.
The fourth seeded Indo-Bahamas pair was up against the American duo of Mardy Fish and Andy Roddick, who conceded the match because of knee injury to Fish.
Bhupathi and Knowles are yet to hit a ball in the tournament, having received a bye in the first round at the sixth of the ten Masters Series tournaments.
They could next face the seventh seeded pair of Leander Paes and Lukas Dlouhy. The Indo-Czech combine will meet the Swiss pair of Roger Federer and Stanislas Wawrinka in their second round match.
