Cincinnati: Leander Paes and Stanislas Wawrinka overcame a sluggish start to beat Kevin Anderson and Jeremy Chardy in the opening round of the Western and Southern Open, the ATP Masters event, here.

The unseeded Indo-Swiss pair dispatched the South African-French combo 1-6 6-1 10-6 to make it to the second round of the USD 4,457,065 hard court tournament.

Paes and singles World No. 5 Wawrinka are contesting their second tournament together, having reached the quarter-finals at the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 event in Paris last October.

They now face eighth seeds Canada's Vasek Pospisil and local boy Jack Sock, whom they beat 6-1 6-4 in Paris.
