Sixth-seeded Indians Mahesh Bhupathi and Rohan Bopanna defeated Spaniards Marcel Granollers and Rafael Nadal 6-4, 6-3 on Monday at the Sony Ericsson Open.

Bhupathi and Bopanna, recent titlists at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships, dropped just fifth points on their first serves for victory in 75 minutes. They will next meet third seeds Michael Llodra and Nenad Zimonjic in the quarter-finals.

In the same half of the draw, Lukasz Kubot and Janko Tipsarevic cruised past Santiago Gonzalez and Scott Lipsky 6-0, 6-3 in just 58 minutes to set up a clash against last year's finalists and second seeds Max Mirnyi and Daniel Nestor.

Seventh seeds Leander Paes and Radek Stepanek, the Australian Open champions in January, saved seven of eight break points against Britons Colin Fleming and Ross Hutchins for a 6-4, 6-3 win in 83 minutes.
