Defending champions Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan led the top four seeds through to the quarter-finals on Tuesday at Wimbledon.

The top-seeded American twins, who are chasing their team’s 99th title and fourth at Wimbledon, defeated Juan Sebastian Cabal and Marcin Matkowski 7-5, 6-3, 7-6(5). They will next play ninth seeds Julian Knowle and Marcelo Melo, who knocked out Australians Chris Guccione and Lleyton Hewitt 6-3, 6-7(2), 7-6(5), 6-3.

Alexander Peya and Bruno Soares, the No. 2 seeds, prevailed against No. 14 seeds Jamie Murray and John Peers 6-3, 6-7(2), 7-6(3), 3-6, 6-3. The two tandems had faced off for the Queen’s Club title two weeks ago, with Peya and Soares also winning that encounter.

Third seeds Daniel Nestor and Nenad Zimonjic, the Wimbledon champions in 2008-09, claimed a 7-6(8), 6-4, 6-4 victory over No. 16 Pablo Cuevas and David Marrero.

Meanwhile, fourth seeds Julien Benneteau and Edouard Roger-Vasselin set a quarter-final showdown with fellow Frenchmen Michael Llodra and Nicolas Mahut. Benneteau and Roger-Vasselin rallied past Australian Open finalists Eric Butorac and Raven Klaasen 6-7(3), 6-2, 7-6(4), 6-3, while the 12th-seeded Llodra and Mahut ousted sixth seeds Marcel Granollers and Marc Lopez 7-6(2), 7-5, 7-5.

Benneteau and Roger-Vasselin won the Roland Garros title last month. Llodra and Mahut came up just short of winning the clay-court major last year, with defeat to the Bryans in the final.

In second-round matches, Vasek Pospisil and Jack Sock completed a 6-7(3), 7-6(5), 6-3, 4-6, 7-5 win over eighth seeds Rohan Bopanna and Aisam-Ul-Haq Qureshi. Jean-Julien Rojer and Horia Tecau, the No. 11 seeds, beat Feliciano Lopez and Jurgen Melzer 7-6(3), 6-3, 7-6(8).
