For 34 year olds, they've never had much success in majors - Julian Knowle had one Wimbledon final, though, that was great, and one other QF.
And Simon Aspelin had only ever had four GS QF. Never got further.
Further more, their career high ranks are 15 (Knowle) and 16 (Aspelin) - also, they've never won an ATP Masters Series.
So it's clearly a HUGE tournament for them. I think it'll push them to career high rankings, it'll be Simon's biggest final and a huge one for Julian too - and just a huge confidence booster at this stage in their career.
And, you know, it's a shame for good doubles players to retire without ever having won a Grand Slam
