The French Nicolas Mahut and Pierre-Hugues Herbert won the doubles at Roland-Garros on Saturday in Paris. In the final they defeated Kazakhs Alexander Bublik and Andrey Golubev in 2 hours and 9 minutes 4-6, 7-6 (7/1) and 6-4.
It is the second time that 39-year-old Mahut and 30-year-old Herbert have put their names on the honor roll. They did that for the first time in 2018. They also have won the Australian Open (2019), Wimbledon (2016) and the US Open (2015).
The previous two years, the Germans Kevin Krawietz and Andreas Mies won the clay grand slam. Due to a knee injury of Mies, Krawietz had to play with a different partner this time. With the Romanian Horia Tecau he went out in the quarterfinals.
