Leander Paes, who ended his title drought this season with the Winstom Salem title, will kickstart his US Open campaign with Czech partner Radek Stepanek against Jarkko Nieminen of Finland and Dmitry Tursunov of Russia.

Paes had won Winston Salem title with Canadian Daniel Nestor but will play the US open with regular partner Stepanek. They have been seeded fourth.

Rohan Bopanna and his French partner Edouard Roger-Vasselin have been seeded sixth and they face the American pair of Bradley Klahn and Sam Querrey in their opening match.
