After a day to forget for the Indians at the US Open 2013 with Somdev Devvarman, Mahesh Bhupathi making early exits while mixed doubles also saw India's challenge come to an end, it was sort of a 'clean sweep' on Saturday.

10th seeds Sania Mirza and partner Zheng Jie of China had a comfortable entry into pre-quarterfinals with a 6-3, 7-5 win over Hungarian Katalin Marosi and USA's Megan Moulton-Levy. They will now face a tough challenge in battle for quarter-final spot against 6th seeds Anna-Lena Groenefeld of Germany and Kveta Peschke of Czech Republic.

In the men's doubles competition, it turned out to be an excellent day for all the Indians in fray.
