Paes-Stepanek did not face a single break-point in the match and broke once in each set.
Earlier in the day, the Indian doubles pair of Mahesh Bhupathi and Rohan Bopanna also entered the quarter-finals, beating Treat Huey and Jonathan Marray in straight sets.
The seventh seeds beat the unseeded American-British combo 7-6(9), 6-4 in 66 minutes.
