Bopanna and Roger-Vasselin, for the second time this year, have been knocked out of a major tournament after having lost in the second round of the Australian Open following a straight-sets loss at Roland Garros 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.
Mektic and Peya will now play their semi-final against the winners of the last-eight clash between Nicolás Jarry of Chile and Maximo Gonzalez of Argentina and the sixth seeded French pair of Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Nicolas Mahut.
