Sonchat and Sanchai, are the defending champions in the Bangkok Open. Having won the title in 2007 after beating Michael Llodra and Nicolas Mahut. In 2008 they won the Chennai doubles title, runner's up in Memphis, and were semi finalists in San Jose and Las Vegas. Now they are ranked 75. They reached career high rank of 49 in doubles this year.
This year they were in the news off the tennis court when they were caught in a hotel fire in Bordeaux France. Luckily the Twins escaped and were heroes because they helped the wife and son of Argentine Player Lucas Arnold escape unhurt from the flames.

Here is a clip from youtube where the twins show their volleying skills:
