The fourth seeded pair of Leander Paes and Samantha Stosur on Thursday moved past the pair of Sebastian Prieto and Flavia Pennetta to enter the quarter-finals of the mixed doubles at Wimbledon.
Paes and Stosur won 6-3, 6-2 in just as hour. They now face a tougher challenge in Bob Bryan and Venus Williams, at the quarter-finals.
Sania Mirza was not quite so lucky though, as she and partner Pavel Vizner went down in the third round to fifth seed Daniel Nestor and Elena Likhovtseva 3-6, 7-5, 2-6.
Paes is now the only Indian in competition among the seniors.
