Last year's semi-finalists Marcelo Arevalo and Jean-Julien Rojer continued their US Open run on Friday when they defeated Matteo Arnaldi and Bart Stevens 6-2, 6-3.

The fourth seeds, who triumphed at Roland Garros together in 2022, dropped just one point on first serve to advance after 61 minutes. Arevalo and Rojer will next face Lloyd Glasspool and Harri Heliovaara or Robert Galloway and Albano Olivetti in the third round.

Top seeds Wesley Koolhof and Neal Skupski overcame 2019 champions Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah 7-6(2), 1-6, 6-3 in two hours and 36 minutes. The Colombian duo Cabal and Farah were competing in their final major before retirement. They will finish their careers with a Davis Cup clash against Ukraine and an ATP Challenger Tour event in Bogota in September.
