French Open winners Leander Paes and Lukas Dlouhy of the Czech Republic crashed out of the Wimbledon tennis championships, overpowered by American James Blake and Mardy Fish 6-4, 6-4, 6-3 in a sensational first-round men's doubles match in London Thursday.

Third seeded Paes and Dlouhy were drowned in a sea of errors to lose in an hour and 49 minutes.

Paes and Dlouhy had 19 break points against their opponents, but they could convert only three. They squandered four break points in the first set and a whopping 13 in the second.

To add to their misery, they had 11 double faults and 12 unforced errors. To top it all, they had problems holding their serve.

Blake and Fish broke them once in the first set and thrice in the second. All together, they converted six of their 12 break points.
