The Londoner and Filipino partner Treat Huey defeated Uzbek Denis Istomin and his Russian partner Mikhail Elgin 6-3 7-6 (5).

British wildcard Peter Colt beat Jake Hammond from the USA 3-6 2-6 6-4 7-6 (6) 6-4 in the 2004 film Wimbledon.

Victory meant the duo repeated their feat of reaching the same stage at Roland Garros as they did last year.

The 27-year-old, who is famous for serving as the tennis double for actor Paul Bettany in the film Wimbledon, will be hoping for more success on the court.

Inglot and Huey have reached four ATP finals, winning one. They have recently reached finals at the Swiss Indoors and in Dusseldorf which has seen them climb to 37th in the world.
