The unseeded Paes and Robredo had to stretch themselves to the full to prevail over the Erlich-Ram pair 6-3, 4-6, 10-2 in the super tie-breaker last night. The Indo-Spanish will now take on the winners of the match between eighth seed Australian-South African pair of Paul Hanley and Wesley Moodie and the unseeded Croat-Swedish combination of Ivan Ljubicic and Robin Soderling.


However, another Indian in the tournament Mahesh Bhupathi and his partner Mark Knowles of Bahamas had already suffered a straight set defeat in the second round to bow out of the event by the unseeded American pair of James Blake and Mardy Fish.
