Leander Paes and Lukas Dlouhy ended their Masters Cup campaign without winning a single set, bowing out after a second successive straight-set defeat on Friday.

The third seeded Indo-Czech pair lost their last round robin match of the Gold group 1-6, 4-6 to the second seeded pair of Canadian Daniel Nestor and Serbian Nenad Zimonjic.

Paes and Dlouhy finished fourth in their four-team group while Mahesh Bhupathi and his Bahamian partner Mark Knowles finished third in the red group.

Only the top two teams of both the groups were to qualify for the semifinal stage of $4,45,000 hard-court event.

Paes and Dlouhy had five chances to break their rivals in the match but squandered all while their opponents succeeded in breaking them twice in the first set and once in the second to register their third win in a row.
