Paris: Indian tennis ace Leander Paes and his Spanish partner Rafael Nadal suffered a shocking straight sets defeat in the opening round of the men's doubles event in the Paris Masters on Tuesday.
The England-Swedish duo of Dominic Inglot and Robert Lindstedt outclassed the Indo-Spanish pair 3-6, 4-6 to advance to the second round.
Paes had earlier won the Australian Open, Wimbledon and US Open mixed doubles titles with Swiss ace Martina Hingis.

The ongoing tournament is the ninth and the final ATP World Tour Masters 1000 event.
