Rohan Bopanna (Kannada: ರೋಹನ್ ಬೋಪಣ್ಣ) (born 4 March 1980) is an Indian professional tennis player. His singles career high ranking was World No. 213 in 2007 and his career high ranking in doubles was World No. 3 on 22 July 2013. Recently, most of his appearances in professional tournaments have been in doubles matches. He is a member of the Indian Davis Cup team since 2002.[2] In 2010, he finished as a runner-up in doubles at the US Open, partnering with Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi.[3]

He is currently ranked 13th in the world in the doubles rankings.[4] Bopanna started playing tennis at age 11. He reached his career high doubles rankings on 22 July 2013 when he was ranked World No. 3 in the ATP Rankings. He reached his career-high singles rankings of world no. 213 on 23 July 2007. Bopanna partnered with Qureshi in doubles in 2007. The duo, nicknamed the IndoPak Express, went on to win four Challenger titles in quick succession. However, it was only in the 2010 season that the pair broke into the top 10 doubles teams. That year, they reached the quarterfinals at Wimbledon, finished runners-up in the US Open and in five ATP Tour events, and won the Johannesburg Open. Bopanna also played a decisive role in India's 2010 Davis Cup triumph over Brazil, taking India back to the World Group for the first time since 1998.[5]

He distinguished himself as a doubles player at the 2007 Hopman Cup. Bopanna's first ATP doubles title came in the 2008 Countrywide Classic in Los Angeles with Eric Butorac.[6]

Early life[edit]

Rohan began playing tennis at the age of 11 because his father wanted him to pursue an individual sport. He did enjoy other games like hockey and football, but by the time he turned 19, tennis became his main priority. His father, M. G. Bopanna, is a coffee planter, and his mother, Malika Bopanna, is a housewife. Both his parents are ardent supporters of Rohan's career. They live in Coorg, which is a four-hour drive from Bangalore. He has an elder sister who lives in Mumbai. Growing up, Rohan idolized and was greatly influenced by Stefan Edberg. He made his Davis Cup debut for India versus Australia in September 2002 and turned pro in 2003.[7]

2007[edit]

Bopanna distinguished himself as one of India's finest doubles players at the 2007 Hopman Cup. Bopanna lost his first singles match, but helped clinch a 2–1 victory with Sania Mirza over the Czech Republic in the final and decisive mixed doubles match. In their second confrontation against Croatia, the scenario was repeated, with Mirza winning her singles match while Bopanna lost. Together they defeated the Croats in mixed doubles to end up with four points out of three matches. India lost to Spain to finish runners-up in Group B, with Mirza and Bopanna losing both their singles matches, but winning in mixed doubles.

2008[edit]

Bopanna won the men's doubles title at the 2008 Countrywide Classic in Los Angeles with partner Eric Butorac.

2009[edit]

Rohan started 2009 fairly well by qualifying for the Chennai Open, but lost in the first round of the main draw. In February, he made it to the final of the SAP Open in San Jose, partnering with Jarkko Nieminen.

2010[edit]

Rohan Bopanna started the year on a high, reaching the quarterfinal of the Chennai Open partnering Mahesh Bhupathi.

In February, with Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi, Bopanna won his second, and the duo's first, ATP doubles title, beating Karol Beck and Harel Levy in the final of the Johannesburg Open, 2–6, 6–3, 10–5. The duo reached the final of the Grand Prix Hassan II in Casablanca, Morocco. They reached the final of the Nice Open, before losing to the Brazilian pair of Marcelo Melo and Bruno Soares.

In June, Bopanna and Qureshi made it to the quarterfinals of a Grand Slam event for the first time in their careers at the 2010 Wimbledon Championships.

After a successful Wimbledon, Bopanna and Qureshi achieved another finals finish at the Atlanta Open. They beat the world no. 1 pair of the Bryan brothers, 7-6, 7-5, in the quarterfinals of the Legg Mason Tennis Classic in Washington, D.C. They lost their semifinal match to Mardy Fish and Mark Knowles. They then reached the finals of the New Haven Open at Yale and the St. Petersburg Open.

At the 2010 US Open, Bopanna reached the finals of a Grand Slam tournament for the first time. Bopanna and Qureshi were seeded 16th and beat the American team of Brian Battistone and Ryler DeHeart, 6-3, 7-6. In the second round, they eliminated Kohlmann and Jarkko Nieminen, 6-4, 6-4. In the third round, the pair upset the second seeds Daniel Nestor and Zimonjic, 6-3, 6-4. In a highly entertaining quarterfinal, Bopanna's big serves made a difference as they knocked out Wesley Moodie and Dick Norman, 7-5, 7-6. In their first semifinal appearance, the duo defeated the Argentine pair of Schwank and Zeballos, 7-6, 6-4. The big-serving Bopanna was spot-on again, as he accumulated one ace after another. Bopanna even pounded an overhead over his shoulder, while retrieving a lob to force an error, causing the commentator Pam Shriver to compare it to Roger Federer's between-the-legs winners against Novak Djokovic and Brian Dabul. The ambassadors of India and Pakistan to the US supported the duo at the finals. The pair took on the world no. 1 and top-seeded Bryan brothers. The pair lost the final in two closely fought sets, 6-7, 6-7. Bopanna was exceptional on serve and conjured some high-intensity aces.

Bopanna played a crucial role in India's triumph at the Davis Cup in Chennai against Brazil. Bopanna won the decider against Rocardo Mello, 6-3, 7-6, 6-3 to clinch the tie 3-2 and take India into the World Group for the first time in 19 years.

Bopanna finished the 2010 season as world no. 8 in doubles.

2011[edit]

Bopanna began the 2011 season with Qureshi at the Chennai Open in early January. With the IndoPak Express and the re-united Indian pair of Mahesh Bhupathi and Leander Paes on opposite sides of the draw, there were hopes for a dream final. However, Bopanna and Qureshi lost in the quarterfinal to eventual finalists Robin Haase and David Martin 4-6, 5-7.

The duo finished in the semifinals at the Medibank International in Sydney. They exited the 2011 Australian Open in the third round.

At the 2011 Davis Cup in Serbia, Bopanna played in singles and doubles with Somdev Devvarman after Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi pulled out of the tournament due to injuries.[8] Bopanna had many Serbian fans applauding his impressive winners, but having clawed his way back into the match after falling two sets behind, he lost the match in the fifth set, 3-6, 3-6, 7-5, 6-3, 3-6. This match enabled Bopanna to qualify for the singles ties to make it to the main draw of the 2011 BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, California. Bopanna defeated Canada's Peter Polansky in a close encounter, 7-6, 3-6, 7-5, before outplaying Germany's Daniel Brands in straight sets, 7-6, 7-6, to secure his spot in the top draw. Bopanna upset higher-ranked opponents on the hard courts of the ATP Masters 1000 event.

With Qureshi, he reached the quarterfinals of 2011 French Open.[9] The duo won the Gerry Weber Open[10] and exited in the semifinals of the 2011 US Open. They won the Stockholm Open against Marcelo Melo and Bruno Soares, 6-1, 6-3.[11] They reached the quarterfinals in Vienna and Valencia and won in Bercy against Julien Benneteau and Nicolas Mahut, 6-2, 6-4.

They participated in the 2011 ATP World Tour Finals in London, losing their first round-robin match to Max Mirnyi and Daniel Nestor.[12]

2012[edit]

In 2012, Bopanna played with compatriot Mahesh Bhupathi. They were seeded fourth at the 2012 Australian Open, but only made it to the third round. He and Bhupathi won their first title together at Dubai.[13]

Bopanna has been selected to participate in the 2012 London Olympics in the Men's Doubles category partnering Mahesh Bhupathi.[14]

Bopanna refused to partner Leander Paes for doubles event for 2012 Summer Olympics triggering a row which finally led to two participating teams, as Leander Paes partnered with Vishnu Vardhan.[15]

On 20 August 2012 at the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 Cincinnati, USA Rohan Bopanna partnering Mahesh Bhupathi lost to Robert Lindstedt and Horia Tecău in the final 4–6, 4–6.[16]

On 4 November 2012, Bopanna and Mahesh Bhupathi won the Paris Masters cup.[17]

On 6 November 2012, Boppana and Bhupathi lost the opening match of ATP Tour finals against Jonathan Marray and Frederik Nielsen[18] but made it to semi-finals after defeating Max Mirnyi and Daniel Nestor.[19]

2013[edit]

Bopanna and Bhupathi played with different partners for the first three months of 2013, but rejoined forces starting with the Monte Carlo Masters.

Rohan partnered Eduard Roger Vasselin in Wimbledon in 2013 and reached the semifinals before bowing out of the competition in a hard-fought match that ended in five sets against the Bryan brothers.

After the team's run at Wimbledon in 2013, Rohan reached his career best ranking of world no. 3 in doubles on 22 July 2013 and was also the first time ranked as the highest Indian on the rankings table.
