Paes-Dlouhy in Thailand Open final

September 27, 2008 19:31 IST

Top seeded Indo-Czech pair of Leander Paes and Lukas Dlouhy stormed into the summit clash of the Thailand Open after inflicting a straight-set defeat on Fabrice Santoro and Jo-Wilfred Tsonga in Bangkok on Saturday.

Paes-Dlouhy thrashed the unseeded French pair 6-4, 6-2 in the last-four match of the USD 576,000 hard court event.

They will now take on the unseeded American duo of Scott Lipsky and David Martin, who beat French pair of Julien Benneteau and Nicolas Mahut 6-3, 3-6, 10-7.

It took Paes-Dlouhy just 57 minutes to beat their rivals today as they broke their rivals once in the first set and twice in the second to clinch the issue.
