Leander Paes and Martina Hingis each completed a career Grand Slam in mixed doubles by winning the French Open final against Sania Mirza and Ivan Dodig 4-6, 6-4, 10-8.

It was the 10th mixed doubles title at a major for India’s Paes, the fifth for Switzerland’s Hingis.
Paes also owns eight Grand Slam men’s doubles trophies, while Hingis has 12 in women’s doubles. Heading into Roland Garros, she had won three majors in a row with Mirza as her partner, but they lost in the third round in Paris.
It wasn’t an ideal start for Paes-Hingis as they lost the opening set 4-6 but the experienced pair fought back to force the game into the decider.
They were trailing in the Championship Tie-break too but recovered in time to seal it 10-8 and get their hands on the trophy missing from their cabinet.
