The French duo Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Nicolas Mahut have won the US Open 2015 men’s doubles title by defeating Jamie Murray of Britian and John Peers from Australia on Satuday with a score of 6-4, 6-4.
Herbert and Mahut have now become the very first Frenchmen to won a US Open men’s double crown. Moreover, it is the first Grand Slam which they have won as partners.
Prior to this tennis tournament, they reached to the semifinals of the Australian Open earlier this year. Murray and Peers missed the title very closely after losing the Wimbledon final which held in July 2015.
Prior to this win, the Frenchmen were successful in winning their only game against Murray and Peers in s-Hertogenbosch semi-final earlier this year.
Herbert was not performing well before teaming up with Mahut. He was at 0-4 but after playing with him, he has reached to 14-3 since the Australia Open.
The French duo made their entry into the ATP singles final earlier this year as a qualifier. In it, Herbert lost the game at Winston-Salem whereas Mahut won at s-Hertogenbosch.
On the other hand, the brother of former singles champ Andy Murray, Jamie Murray was at a low of 9-23 in majors but after teaming up with John Peers at the 2013 French Open, they went up to 23-10 since then.
Except the US men Mike Bryan and Bob, Peers and Murray have become the first team after Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor to make into the men’s doubles final in a row after 2010 French Open.
