ATP Miami: Paes-Stepanek to take on Bryans in semi finals
Australian Open champions Leander Paes and Radek Stepanek have reached the semi finals of the Sony Ericsson Open in Miami.
The seventh seeded Indo-Czech duo scored a 7-6(6), 6-4 victory over Spaniards David Marrero and Fernando Verdasco.
The two will now meet the top ranked Bryan brothers in the semi finals in a repeat of the Australian Open final which Paes and Stepanek won.
The Indian-Czech duo broke serve twice to win in 87 minutes.
Paes is gunning for his third title in Miami in a row having won with Luka Dlouhy in 2010 and Mahesh Bhupathi in 2011. Bhupathi is also in the semi finals this year with new partner Rohan Bopanna.
