It remains to be seen if an Indian does make it to the quarterfinals at the event considering the current form of the players.
The top pairing of Ramkumar Ramanathan and Purav Raja will be up against the fourth seeds Blumberg and Schnur. While Bhambri and Saketh are up against Sandgren and Torpegaard. With the current form of the Indians it shouldnt be a surprise if atleast one of the teams make it to the Semifinals.
