Paes-Vesnina in Wimbledon mixed doubles semis London: India`s Leander Paes and his Russian partner Elena Vesnina beat unseeded Paul Hanley and Alla Kudryavtseva to stroll into the mixed doubles semifinals of the Wimbledon tennis championships here Friday.

The fourth seeds got the better of the Australian-Russian pairing 6-2, 6-2 in the quarters. They next meet winners of the match between top seeds Bob Bryan-Liezel Huber of America and eighth seeds Daniel Nestor of Canada and Julia Goerges of Germany.
