London, July 6 (UNI) Fourth seeded pair of Leander Paes and his Australian team mate Samantha Stosur took exactly an hour to sweep away Argentine Sebastian Prieto and his Italian comrade-in-arms Flavia Pennetta in straight sets to storm into the quarterfinals of the mixed doubles event at Wimbledon here today.
