Paes-Stepanek pair makes winning start to Miami Masters
Miami: Leander Paes and Radek Stepanek laboured their way to the pre-quarterfinals of the Miami Masters after downing Marcos Baghdatis and Sam Querrey, on Saturday. The seventh seeded Indo-Czech pair overcame their opponents 6-2 7-6 (3) in the opening round of the USD 3,973,050 hard-court event.
