Cabal/Farah, Bopanna/Shapovalov Set Queen’s Club Meeting
Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah bounced back from a first-round Roland Garros exit to win a Match Tie-break Monday at the Cinch Championships. The fourth-seeded Colombians edged qualifiers Andre Goransson and Ben McLachlan, 3-6, 6-3, 10-4, at The Queen’s Club in London to return to winning ways.
Each team broke serve once in the contest, with Cabal and Farah creating four break chances while facing just one break point against them.
The victory sets up a quarter-final showdown against Rohan Bopanna and Denis Shapovalov, after the Indian-Canadian duo dismissed Diego Schwartzman and Pedro Martinez, 7-6(6), 6-4.

In their quarter-final meeting, Cabal and Farah will seek consecutive victories for the first time since their run to the Mutua Madrid Open final in early May. Bopanna and Shapovalov lost in the first round in Madrid but reached the semi-finals last week in Stuttgart in their first event as a pair since the ATP Masters 1000 in the Spanish capital.
