In a thrilling encounter, Bopanna and Middelkoop saved 5 match points to outsmart Wimbledon champions from the ongoing Roland Garros Grand Slam event.

In the decider, the pair showed tremendous mental strength to fight back from 3-5 down to take the match to a super tiebreak. They were again 0-3 behind but won 10 straight points to register the victory.
