Fifth seeds Leander Paes and Radek Stepanek rallied to enter the men's doubles semifinals defating third-seeded Canadian-Serbian pair of Daniel Nestor and Nenad Zimonjic 3-6, 7-6, 6-3, 6-4 at Wimbledon on Thursday

Last year's US Open champions Paes and Stepanek then exhibited great composure to seal the third set 6-3 in a matter of just 26 minutes. A two sets to one lead meant they were now firmly in the drivers seat as far as the match was concerned.

In the fourth set, Paes and Stepanek took advantage of a crucial break when scores were tied 3-3 to win 6-4, wrapping up the match in their favour after two hours and 35 minutes of exhilarating play.
