On Sunday, Nicolas Mahut and Pierre-Hugues Herbert will face Russians Andrey Rublev and Karen Khachanov, winner of the singles tournament last year, to try to clinch the 13th title of their collaboration which started in 2015, and the second for this year.
Mahut and Herbert, ranked respectively 3rd and 23rd in the ATP doubles standings, won the Australian Open in January, the only Grand Slam title to miss. They did not defend their title at Roland-Garros.
They have already won six Masters 1000 tournaments together. Mahut also played and lost in Bercy the 2011 final. He was then associated with Julien Benneteau.
