It was the Indian duo’s first ever win over Lindstedt and Tecau, who won at ATP World Tour Masters 1000 events in Madrid and Cincinnati this year.
Leander Paes and his Czech partner Radek Stepanek also began their campaign with a straight set win over seventh seeds Qureshi and Jean-Julien Roger, here.
The Indo-Czech pair got the better of Pakistan-Dutch combo, runners-up at Paris Masters last week, 6-4 7-5 in their opening Group A match.
