Continuing with their message of 'Stop War, Start Tennis', 16th seeds Bopanna and Qureshi beat Argentines Eduardo Schwank and Horacio Zeballos 7-6 (5) 6-4 to set up a summit clash with top-seeded American brothers Bob and Mike Bryan in the finals.

The Indo-Pak duo was cheered on from the stands by, among others, the United Nations ambassadors from their respective countries. India's ambassador Harpreet Suri and his Pakistan counterpart Abdullah H Haroon even met the two players after the match.

Though there summit clash seems tough on paper against the Americans but Bopanna and Qureshi can draw confidence from the fact that they beat the Bryans just a few weeks ago in an ATP tournament in Washington.

The Indian duo of Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi was the last pair from the sub-continent to reach the finals at Flushing Meadows. In fact, the two made it to the finals of all the four grand slam events in 1999 and went on to win the French Open and Wimbledon that year.
