Bengaluru, November 13: Leander Paes and Purav Raja lifted the Knoxville Challenger after comfortable straight sets win in the final of the men's doubles event.

The top-seeded pair swept aside the American-Australian duo of James Cerretani and John Patrick Smith 7-6, 7-6 in the summit showdown of the USD 75,000 hard court event that took place at the indoor hard court of Goodfriend Tennis Center.

It is Paes and Raja's first-ever title after joining forces in August this year.
Earlier, Leander Paes won three Challenger level titles this season pairing with Canadian Adil Shamasdin and American Scott Lipsky.

Raja, on the other hand, before partnering with Paes, had sealed the Bordeaux Challenger title with Divij Sharan besides making it to the summit showdown of the Chennai Open.
