Good Sports: BOPANNA JOINS EXCLUSIVE CLUB

It took him 14 years on the professional tennis tour to do it, but Rohan Bopanna has finally won a Grand Slam title.

The 37-year-old doubles specialist from Bangalore became only the fourth Indian to win a Grand Slam title when he and his Canadian partner, Gabriela Dabrowski, won the mixed doubles championship at this year’s French Open.

The pair had to win a tense tiebreaker in the third set to defeat Germany’s Anna-Lena Groenefeld and Colombia’s Robert Farah in the final.

Bopanna joins Sania Mirza, Mahesh Bhupathi, and Leander Paes in the Indian Grand Slam Club. Paes has won 18 Grand Slam titles, Bhupathi 12 titles, and Mirza 6 titles.
