Leander Paes and Lukas Dlouhy crashed out of the World Tour Finals with third straight defeat but Mahesh Bhupathi and Max Mirnyi's fate is still hanging in balance.

Bhupathi and his partner are in a do-or-die situation as they will have to win their last league match in group B against Wesley Moodie and Dick Norman to qualify for the semifinals.

The third seed Indo-Belarusian landed into the tough situation after losing the second match 6-7(5) 6-7(1) to Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor.

Paes and Dlouhy were already out of reckoning after two defeats but bowed out of the season-ending finale without registering a single win as they lost the last league match 3-6 4-6 to top seeds Mike and Bob Bryan.

Top-eight teams compete in the prestigious season-ending ATP tournament.
