Vasek Pospisil and Jack Sock improved to 13-0 together, holding off second-seeds Alexander Peya and Bruno Soares 6-2, 5-7, 10-7 at the Western & Southern Open on Friday.

Pospisil and Sock, champions at Wimbledon and the Citi Open, are enjoying the best team start in the past 30 years, since Christo van Rensburg and Paul Annacone won 12 straight in 1984-85.

The Canadian-American duo defeated last week's Rogers Cup titlists Peya and Soares for the second time during their win streak, having prevailed in the Wimbledon quarter-finals in four sets. They will next face No. 6 seeds Julien Benneteau and Edouard Roger-Vasselin in the semis.

The French tandem of Benneteau and Roger-Vasselin earned their first win in three meetings with Daniel Nestor and Nenad Zimonjic, triumphing 6-3, 6-4 in 68 minutes. Benneteau, also a semi-finalist in the singles draw, is seeking his third ATP World Tour Masters 1000 title following victories in Monte-Carlo in 2013 (w/Zimonjic) and in Shanghai in '09 (w/Tsonga).

Top seeds Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan continued their title defence in Cincinnati, dismissing Jean-Julien Rojer and Horia Tecau 7-6(5), 6-7(6), 10-2 in the quarter-finals. The four-time champions needed one hour and 50 minutes to advance and set up an All-American semi-final clash with wild cards Steve Johnson and Sam Querrey. Johnson and Querrey secured their place in the last four by downing Robert Lindstedt and Marcin Matkowski 7-6(7), 4-6, 10-2.
