India's Leander Paes and his Czech partner Radek Stepanek entered their second successive men's doubles final at the US Open, avenging their last year's defeat in the title clash by American twins Mike and Bob Bryan.

Paes, who is in line for his eighth men's Grand Slam doubles title, and Stepanek won 3-6, 6-3, 6-4, thus denying the top seeds Bryans what would have been a calendar Slam, the first since 1951, and a fifth major in a row.
