Britain's Jamie Murray reached his seventh successive US Open quarter-final after he and Brazilian partner Bruno Soares beat Dominik Koepfer and Emil Ruusuvuori in the men's doubles.

Murray and Soares, the 2016 champions here, won 7-6 (8-6) 6-7 (4-7) 6-1.

They are joined by Joe Salisbury, with the Briton and American Rajeev Ram winning a tight encounter against Rohan Bopanna and Ivan Dodig.

They beat the Indian-Croatian pair 6-7 (4-7) 6-4 7-6 (7-3).

Fourth seeds Salisbury and Ram will take on Australians Matt Ebden and Max Purcell in the quarter-finals.

Meanwhile, seventh seeds Murray and Soares will face second seeds Marcel Granollers and Horacio Zeballos, who saw off Briton Jonny O'Mara and Pakistan's Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi on Monday.

Murray reached the quarter-finals last year and in 2019 with compatriot Neal Skupski but has since rekindled a partnership with Soares, with whom he won two Grand Slam titles in 2016.
