India's Leander Paes and his mixed doubles partner Zimbabwean Cara Black advanced to the Wimbledon's semi-finals on Thursday.

Second seeds Paes and Black beat the Australian-Taiwanese pair of Paul Hanley and Chan Yung-Jan 6-4, 6-7 (7/4), 6-3 in the third quarter final.

With the win Paes and his partner set a semi-final clash with his doubles partner Lukas Dlouhy and his Czech mate Iveta Benesova.
