Wimbledon champions Neal Skupski and Wesley Koolhof were made to work hard to secure their place in the third round of the US Open men's doubles.

Britain's Skupski and Dutch partner Koolhof beat Colombian duo Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah 7-6 (7-2) 1-6 6-3 on Court 12.

Cabal and Farah were vociferously backed by a group of Colombian fans but the top seeds held their nerves well.

They will face American duo Nathaniel Lammons and Jackson Withrow next.

Having been broken in the first game, Skupski and Koolhof battled back to take the first set on a tie-break.

Although Cabal and Farah delighted the crowd as they dominated the second, Skupski and Koolhof remained calm, breaking early in the third before keeping their advantage to win the match.

British pair Julian Cash and Henry Patten are also into round three after a straight-set victory.

They beat Gregoire Barrere and Quentin Halys, both of France, 7-6 (7-3) 6-3 to set up a meeting with sixth seeds Rohan Bopanna and Matthew Ebden.
