Monaco:

Leander Paes and Radek Stepanek were routed 2-6, 0-6 by top seeds Mike and Bob Bryan as the Indian challenge ended at the ATP Monte Carlo Masters, here.

The crushing defeat of the fifth seeded Indo-Czech pair came in just 50 minutes in the quarter-final contest.

The two break chances that Paes and Stepanek got, went abegging even as they surrendered their own serve five times in the match.

Mahesh Bhupathi and Rohan Bopanna had already bowed out of the event after losing their second round match 4-6, 4-6 to Viktor Troicki and Stanislas Wawrinka.
