Basel, Switzerland:

Leander Paes and Lukas Dlouhy crashed out of the euro 891,000 ATP Indoor event but Mahesh Bhupathi and Mark Knowles advanced to the quarterfinals with an easy win.

The third seed Indo-Czech pair were stunned by unseeded Germans Christopher Kas and Philipp Kohlschreiber. Paes and Dlouhy went down 3-6 0-6 to bow out of the event.

The second seeded Bhupathi-Knowles pair though had no difficulty in dumping the Spanish pair of Marcel Granollers and Feliciano Lopez 6-4 6-1 in their first round match.

They next face Jordan Kerr of Australia and Finn Jarko Nieminen for a place in the semifinals.
