The fifth-seeded Indo-Czech combo took just 74 minutes to outplay their opponents 6-2, 6-4.

Paes and Stepanek, who had won the Australian Open title earlier this year, dominated from the word 'go' in the quarterfinal match on Wednesday night.

Even as the Austrian-Slovak duo failed to earn a single breakpoint, Paes and Stepanek converted two of the five breakpoints to walk away with the match comfortably.

The Indo-Czech pair will next take on the sixth-seeded Spanish combination of Marcel Granollers and Marc Lopez, who had defeated Bruno Soares of Brazil and Austria's Alexander Peya, 6-3, 6-4.
