Asian Games: Bopanna-Sharan pair lands men's doubles gold

The duo produced clinical display of attacking tennis to beat the Kazakhstan pairing of Aleksander Bublik and Denis Yevseyev 6-3, 6-4 in 52 minutes.

Less than 20 minutes into the match, the Indians were 4-1 ahead, breaking Bublik and Yevseyev at the very first opportunity they got. Kazakhs did have their moments but were undone by erratic and inconsistent play - a brilliant cross-court backhand victor one moment was followed up by a powerless return buried in the net the very next minute.

Rohan Bopanna and Divij Sharan won the Asian Games men's doubles gold medal with a win in straight sets. At 3-3, Bopanna and Sharan clinched the all-important break to go up and despite being pushed a bit in the very next game, the top seeds held serve to grab a 5-3 lead.

The second set went slightly better for Bublik and Yevseyev but they just could not rein in the unforced errors, including a double fault in the fifth game which could have cost them. Kazakhs held their serve to put the onus on Bopanna to hold for the gold medal - which he did so by serving it out to love. However, the men's doubles title has been a sure-shot gold in recent years - India have four golds between 1994 and 2010, with Paes having featured in three of those.
