After dropping their first set against the Swiss doubles team of Roger Federer – the world’s number one player – and Stanislas Wawrinka, Jonathan Erlich and Andy Ram of Israel advanced out of the second round of Olympic play on Tuesday.

Federer and Wawrinka won the first set easily 1-6, but Erlich and Ram charged back, winning the next two sets, 7-6 (5), 6-3.

The Israeli team will face Robert and Michael Bryan of the United States in the next round of Olympic play.
