After a fighting performance against top seeds Bob Bryan and Liezel Huber a day earlier, the Indo-Russian pair of Leander Paes and Elena Vesnina will face second seeds Mike Bryan and Lisa Raymond of the United States for the mixed doubles title, here on Sunday.

The second Grand Slam final for the pair, both Paes and Vesnina had to work hard to earn a shot at the title. Their 7-5 3-6 6-3 victory puts them against Bryan and Raymond, both of whom are players with considerable experience.

Paes-Vesnina though are in prime form as well. Having finished second best in the Australian Open, the pair will be high on confidence and have enough experience playing on grass to take the crown.
