New York: India's tennis players Leander Paes and Sania Mirza entered the quarterfinals of their respective categories in the US Open at the Flushing Meadows Sunday.

While the veteran Paes won his men's doubles tie with Czech partner Radek Stepanek, Sania advanced with China's Jie Zheng in women's doubles.

Seeded fourth, Paes and Stepanek won 7-5, 4-6, 6-3 against French 14th seeds Michael Llodra and Nicolas Mahut in two hours and 12 minutes on Court 17. After sharing the first two sets, the fourth seeds converted their only breakpoint in the deciding set to bag the match.

Elsewhere on Court 8, 10th seeds Sania and Jie Zheng upset German-Czech sixth seeds Anna-Lena Groenefeld and Kveta Peschke 6-2, 6-3 in one hour and 12 minutes to enter the last eight.
