VETERAN Indian tennis star Leander Paes and Martina Hingis sailed into the quarter-finals of the mixed doubles event at the Australian Open with straight sets win over Australian duo of Matt Reid and Casey Dellacqua, here on Monday.

The Indo-Swiss pair took just 54 minutes to get the better of Reid and Dellacqua 6-2, 6-3 in the second round encounter.

It was total domination from Paes and Hingis as they took control of the match from the onset and didn’t give their rivals any opportunity to forge a comeback. The Indo-Swiss pair broke Dellacqua in the fourth game to gain an early lead.

While Hingis controlled the baseline, Paes was near perfect at the net, converting almost every time he approached the net.
