India's Rohan Bopanna and Mahesh Bhupathi romped into the doubles semi-finals of the ATP World Tour Finals, defeating higher-ranked pair of Max Mirnyi and Daniel Nestor.

The World No.5 duo got the better of the second-ranked team 7-6 (5), 6-7 (5), 10-5 in a pulsating Group B match at O2 arena here.

Bhupathi-Bopanna, fresh from their win in Paris Masters, played their heart out against the Belarusian-Canadian duo, winning the tie in a little less than two hours.

Bhupathi-Bopanna qualify as the runner-up team from Group B and face the winners of Group A in the last four.
