That was a brilliant comeback from Paes/Stepanek. That shot by Paes to break Mirnyi's serve in last set was just TOP CLASS.

After all these years, he still has it in him to play such tennis.

Tough test awaits though against Bryans, asusual.

Shame for Max but still can't wait for the final.

Is this Stepanek's first slam final?

I just saw the highlights on the sports news. Paes lecturing the umpire was pretty funny. :)

Is this Stepanek's first slam final?

He reached the USO final in 2002 with Jiri Novak, losing to Bhupathi/Mirnyi (6-4 in the third). Also RG semifinals in 2007 with Bhupathi

After defeating the 3rd and 2nd seeds here, hopefully they can beat the Bryans too. GL in the final Leander/Radek :)

One of the best doubles matches I've ever seen. In the end, Mirnyi kinda ruined it for their team. Paes is completely unlikable, but he sure is fun to watch

What to say about Leander Paes? The lob he played to break Mirnyi in the second set and again the OUT OF THE WORLD shot in third set at fifth game to break Mirnyi again was truely a doubles lgend. Ithought Nestor played quite oky but he was also broken in the last set due to some superalative doubles return by both of them, so here Nestor was not that guilty..Mirnyi was the weak link..At the end very good comeback win :)
