Two doubles teams survived match point en route to quarterfinal victories Friday.
Mahesh Bhupathi and Leander Paes, the sixth seeds, saved six match points in the second set of their 3-6, 7-6 (12), 6-2 victory over Jiri Novak and David Rikl.
Martin Damm and David Prinosil rallied from a 6-5 deficit in a third-set tiebreak, winning the final three points to edge brothers Bob and Mike Bryan 4-6, 6-3, 7-6 (6).

Bhupathi and Paes, natives of India, finished 1999 as the world's No.1 team. After injuries to each slowed them last year, they have since risen to seventh in the team standings.
On his third match point Friday, Novak had an easy volley for the win, but he mishit it and Bhupathi returned it for a winner.
We were very lucky there, Paes said. And after winning that tiebreak, it was a huge momentum change.
