Melbourne, Jan 29, (ANI): The third-seeded duo of Mahesh Bhupathi and Mark Knowles cruised into the finals of mens doubles of the Australian Open.
Mahesh Bhupathi and Mark Knowles defeated the unseeded Polish-Austrian pair of Lukasz Kubot and Oliver Marach 6-3 6-1 taking just 58 minutes to win their semifinal encounter.
Mahesh Bhupathi has now a chance to grab his fifth mens doubles Grand Slam title, his first Australian Open title and 11th overall.
The last time he made the finals of the men’’s doubles at the Australian Open was in 1999, with his estranged partner Leander Paes. This Indo-Bahamian pair put up a sterling show at the net and broke their rivals once in the first set to take a 1-0 lead and then outplayed them in the second to clinch the issue. (ANI)
