October 21, 2008 17:35 IST

Indian ace Mahesh Bhupathi and his Bahamian partner Mark Knowles's final appearance at last week's Madrid Masters has booked the duo a berth in the season-ending prestigious Tennis Masters Cup to be held in Shanghai next month.

The top seven teams in the ATP doubles race apart from Roland Garros winners Pablo Cuevas of Uruguay and Luis Horna of Peru would compete in the event.

Bhupathi and Knowles are placed third in the race with 593 points while Leander Paes and Lukas Dlouhy are at the sixth place with 431 points.

Bhupathi and Knowles won ATP titles in Memphis and Dubai apart from reaching four finals, including three at ATP Masters Series events at Miami, Monte Carlo and Madrid.
