Zimonjic and Llodra into Dubai quarterfinals

Top seeds Michael Llodra and Nenad Zimonjic required just 48 minutes to beat Marsel Ilhan and Malek Jaziri 6-1, 6-3 on Wednesday at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships.

The French-Serbian team won 32 of their 44 service points and saved all four break points they faced to set up a quarter-final meeting with Julian Knowle and Alexander Peya. Llodra and Zimonjic recently lifted their fifth team title at the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament in Rotterdam (d. Lindstedt-Tecau). In 2011, they reached the Dubai semi-finals.
