The first set seemed a bit tight than what the scores suggested. They won the set in 39 minutes, where they broke many break points to put them in a commanding position. Bhupati, who was struggling initially took the charge later. During the second set, it was a pumped up and a confident looking Indian pair, who played good tennis to walk away with the game.
With this victory, the Indian pair has come close to their second grand slam mixed doubles crown , which they had last won in the form of 2009 Australian Open. They would like to replicate the success, as it would be a great confidence booster for both the players in future grand slam tournaments. Many experts have claimed that the Indian pair would win the championship. If they manage to win the title, it would be Mirza's first mixed doubles title at the French Open. In 1997, Bhupathi became the first Indian to win a Grand Slam tournament when he claimed the French Open Mixed Doubles title.
