Top seeds Leander Paes and his Zimbabwean partner Cara Black breezed into the semifinals of Wimbledon's mixed doubles event with a facile straight set win over 11th seeded Andre Sa and Ai Sugiyama here on Thursday.

The Indo-Zimbabwean duo needed a little over an hour to swamp the Sa-Sugiyama pair 6-3, 6-3 in the lop-sided quarterfinal match.

In the semifinals, they will take on 12th seeded pair of Australian Stephen Huss and his Spaniard partner Virginia Ruano Pascual.

The Huss-Pascal duo defeated fourth seeds Kevin Ullyett and Su-Wei Hsieh 6-3, 5-7, 9-7 in a hard-fought quarterfinal match.
