The fifth-seeded duo prevailed upon sixth-seeded Spaniards Marcel Granollers and Marc Lopez when the latter retired with the scoreline reading 6-6.

In today's final, Paes-Stepanek will face second-seeded Americans Bob and Mike Bryan who got past the Pakistani-Dutch pairing of Aisam-Ul-Haq Qureshi and Jean-Julien Rojer 6-3, 6-4.

"I feel sorry for Marc. We all come here to entertain you and they are great guys," Paes said after the match. "I have a great partner. He really pushed me today and pulled the whip out, which is probably what I needed. We are looking forward to the final."
