Montreal: India`s Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi made a shock second round exit losing 1-6, 6-7 (9) to Czech Tomas Berdych and German Florian Mayer in the Rogers Cup tennis men`s doubles.

The third-seeded Indians were given a bye in the first round.
Bhupathi has won the Rogers Cup doubles title five times, including with Paes in 1997 and 2004. This was the first time the experienced Indian pair joined forces here since their 2004 triumph.

It is the first time Berdych and Mayer won back-to-back matches as a team. They had beaten Spaniards Rafael Nadal and Marc Lopez in the first round.
