Great effort, they looked pretty hot. Hope that they can keep it going, and build on their 1st title.

The Frenchies wasted so many chances in the 2nd set

Nice job for the brothers

Re: Bangkok Doubles Final: Ratiwatana/Ratiwatana def Llodra/Mahut 3-6 7-5 10-7

Great for Thailand! Congratulations to the twins, Sanchat and Sanchai.
Here is the news item from The Nation newspaper of bangkok:
Quote:
THAILAND OPEN
Twins win first ATP trophy
Sonchat and Sanchai Ratiwatana pinned a new chapter in the Thai tennis history by becoming the first Thais to capture an ATP doubles title following their astonishing final win in the Thailand Open at the Impact Arena on Saturday.




The twin brothers came from the first set loss to upset the third-seeded Michael Llorda and Nicolas Mahut of France 3-6 7-5 10-7 in front of the jubilant 8,000 fans after one hour and 10 minutes.
"I didn't know what to say. We reached our first ATP final at home and we won. I felt warm and hopefully things will be better from now on,'' said Sanchai.

"I would like to thank everyone who comes to support us. I'd like to thank my family, my parents for always being there."

They took a cheque of US$26,550 for the championship. - Lerpong Amsa-ngiam, The Nation

Shame on all those who are crying fixed. Haven't you heard of home crowd advantage? Do you have any proof of match fixing in this case?

MAY ALL BEINGS BE HAPPY!!

It may be their first ATP title, but they are not new to winning tournaments. They toured challengers in Europe and other places recently and won many doubles titles there. Although not significant from a competitive standpoint they must have gained a lot of experience there.

Shocking win here. They have no power at all in their shots, not even big serves. They looked like average challenger players to me. Llodra/Mahut must have playe at 50% or so.

I think Seed 3 and Seed 4 and other double players in this tournament look down Thai twins ability like you so they lost to Thai twin.
