Marcelo Arevalo and Jean-Julien Rojer overcame Americans Taylor Fritz and Frances Tiafoe 6-3, 6-4 at the Mutua Madrid Open to reach their fifth tour-level quarter-final of the season.

Chasing their third tour-level title this year, the fourth seeds won 90 per cent (28/31) of their first-serve points to move past the Top 15 singles stars and improve to 14-6 as a team on clay. Arevalo and Rojer, who triumphed at Roland Garros last season, will next face Felix Auger-Aliassime and Denis Shapovalov.

The Canadians, who advanced to the last eight in Indian Wells, downed sixth seeds Lloyd Glasspool and Harri Heliovaara 6-4, 6-2.

In other action, Jamie Murray and Michael Venus defeated Nathaniel Lammons and Jackson Withrow 3-6, 6-3, 10-4 in one hour and 21 minutes. Murray and Venus have now won six consecutive matches after lifting the trophy in Banja Luka last week.

Eighth seeds Santiago Gonzalez and Edouard Roger-Vasselin also advanced, defeating Hugo Nys and Jan Zielinski 6-4, 6-2.
