Mahut Celebrates Double Triumph In Newport

Nicolas Mahut became Monday the first ‘double’ titlist at the Hall of Fame Tennis Championships since Rajeev Ram lifted the singles and doubles (w/ Jordan Kerr) trophies in 2009. Dan Goldie also completed the ‘double’ in 1987.

Twenty hours after he captured his second ATP World Tour singles title over former World No. 1 Lleyton Hewitt, Mahut joined forces with fellow Frenchman Edouard Roger-Vasselin to beat Americans Tim Smyczek and Rhyne Williams 6-7(4), 6-2, 10-5 in one hour and 33 minutes for the Newport doubles crown.

"I feel really honoured to be one of the three," said the 31-year-old Mahut. "I wasn’t feeling 100 per cent at the beginning, but in the end, I played good at the right time and Edouard played really well."
