Indian tennis star Rohan Bopanna along with his French partner E Roger-Vasselin knocked out of the French Open tennis tournament when the tag team lost a straight-sets in the men's doubles quarter-finals here on Tuesday.

The 13th seeded Indo-French combination went down 6-7, 2-6 to eighth seeds Nikola Mektic of Croatia and Austria's Alexander Peya in an hour and 32 minutes.
