MUMBAI (Reuters) - The rupee opened up on Friday as easing worries of a funding crunch in the euro zone economies bolstered hopes for capital flows into riskier assets.

At 9 a.m. (0330 GMT), the rupee was at 51.33/34 to the dollar, stronger than Thursday's close of 51.580/585.

Asian shares rose on better-than-expected demand for Italian sovereign debt, shrugging off a rocket launch by North Korea.
