There will be British interest in both men's doubles semi-finals at the US Open after Dom Inglot and his Swedish partner Robert Lindstedt went through.

Briton Jamie Murray, 29, and Australian John Peers have already reached the final four at Flushing Meadows.

And they will be joined by Inglot, 29, and Lindstedt after they overcame sixth seeds Rohan Bopanna of India and Romania's Florin Mergea 7-6 (7-2) 6-3.

The pair will meet French duo Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Nicolas Mahut.

Inglot, who partnered with Mergea until the Briton was dropped in March, will compete in his first Grand Slam semi-final against the 12th seeds.

Eighth seeds Murray and Peers will face Steve Johnson and Sam Querrey after the unseeded American team beat Argentina's Leonardo Mayer and Joao Sousa of Portugal 6-3 6-4.

Dom Inglot tweeted: Semis of a Grand Slam for the 1st time @usopen tomorrow vs Mahut and Herbert. Few big serves on that court. Pumped is an understatement!!!
