New Delhi: It turned out to be a bad day for Indians at the French Open 2016 on Wednesday as after Bopanna missed out on the quarters another Indian Leander Paes was also knocked out of the tournament.
 
Paes and his Polish partner Marcin Matkowski were beaten 6-7, 3-6 by the American fifth-seeded pair of Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan on Wednesday.
