CINCINNATI, Aug 19: The Indo-Swiss tennis combine of Leander Paes and Stan Wawrinka earned a three-set victory to enter the men�s doubles quarter-finals of Cincinnati Masters here.

The unseeded pair ousted Canadian-American eighth seeds Vasek Pospisil and Jack Sock 7-6(4), 3-6, 10-3 in an hour and 17 minutes on the outdoor hard courts of the Lindner Family Tennis Center on Tuesday.

The first set was a neck-and-neck affair and was evenly contested as neither pair gave even a single breakpoint opportunity to the other. No break of serves meant the set entered the tie-breaker where Paes and Wawrinka proved a tad bit better to seal the set 7-4.

Veteran Paes showed his class when it mattered. The 42-year-old was brilliant at the net which helped the Indo-Swiss combination to easily clinch the super tie-break 10-3 and march into the last eight stage.

Another Indo-Swiss combine � Sania Mirza and Martina Hingis � will play their women�s doubles second round here on Wednesday against German-Polish pair Julia Goerges and Klaudia Jans-Ignacik. The top seeds had received a bye in the first round. � IANS
