Sania-Bhupathi sail into second round,

The unseeded duo of Sania and Bhupathi handed a straight set mauling to sixth seeds Czech pair of Kveta Peschke and Pavel Vizner 6-2, 6-4.

The Indian pair will now take on local favourites Anastasia Rodionova and Stephen Huss, who defeated compatriots Jessica Moore and Carsten Ball 7-5, 7-5 in their first round match.

Sania, who has already crashed out of the singles' event, was spot on with her game at the net. The Indian pair took just 27 minutes to seal the first set although, their rivals came back hard in the next set but Sania and Bhupathi were equal to the task to book a place in the second round.
