Herbert/Mahut Win Third Consecutive Masters 1000

Frenchmen come back from set down to claim Monte-Carlo title

Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Nicolas Mahut are the team to beat at the moment on the ATP World Tour. The French duo won their third ATP World Tour Masters 1000 crown in a row on Sunday at the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters. The third seeds became the first French titlists at the Monte-Carlo Country Club since 1986 (Forget/Noah) as they defeated Australian Open champions Jamie Murray and Bruno Soares 4-6, 6-0, 10-6.

"We were playing well and we also had some luck," Mahut said. "When you win matches, you're more confident and you're able to relax when you play the important points. It can turn a match around, especially in the (match) tie-break."

The final was delayed due to rain – a rare weather blip in what has been a near-perfect week in the Principality – and it was Murray/Soares who started the stronger. The British/Brazilian duo missed the chance to serve for the set at 5-4, but broke again in the 10th game to clinch the opener.

"We were the better team the first set. We were returning well, playing good," Murray said.

From there, Herbert and Mahut went on a tear, reeling off the next six games to level the match, dropping just five points on their serve. They carried that momentum into the Match Tie-break and after establishing an early 5-1 lead, fought off any hopes of a fightback from Murray/Soares as they went on to prevail in 74 minutes.

After victories in Indian Wells (d. Pospisil/Sock) and Miami (d. Klaasen/Ram), Herbert and Mahut are the first team since Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan in 2014 to sweep the first three Masters 1000 titles of the season. Herbert and Mahut captured their fifth tour-level title together, a haul that includes the US Open crown last year.

"We have been very humble on the court during the last month and a half," Herbert said. "After losing the first set, we could have been overwhelmed in the second. But we weren't. We kept fighting. That means in the long-term, we can be consistent day after day."

Murray and Soares were bidding to win their third title of the season after victories in Sydney (d. Bopanna/Mergea) and Melbourne (d. Nestor/Stepanek).

Herbert, Mahut Win Back-To-Back Masters 1000 Titles

France's Nicolas Mahut hardly could comprehend all the success his doubles team is having.

Two weeks ago, he and compatriot Pierre-Hugues Herbert were giving victory speeches in Indian Wells after winning the year's first ATP World Tour Masters 1000 tournament. On Saturday, they were saying thanks in South Florida after winning the Miami Open presented by Itau, another Masters 1000 event. The Frenchmen beat American Rajeev Ram and South African Raven Klaasen 5-7, 6-1, 10-7 on Saturday afternoon. Herbert and Mahut became the first doubles team to win Indian Wells and Miami back-to-back since Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan did in 2014.

“Winning last week in Indian Wells was already fantastic but winning back-to-back, Indian Wells and here, it's maybe too much,” Mahut said. “I don't know what to say. It's great for us.”

The Frenchmen have now won 10 consecutive matches and four tour-level titles as a team. For Mahut, the Miami victory gives him his 13th doubles title; Herbert earned his fifth. They won Miami with a comeback that featured stellar serving and controlled net play.

Herbert and Mahut had four break chances in the first set, but Ram and Klaasen erased them. The American and South African used their only break chance at 6-5 to win the set.

The second set, though, was all France. After losing the final eight points of the first set, the Frenchmen won the next eight points, including a service break. They broke Ram and Klaasen two more times and more than doubled their point total – 26-12 – in the second set to level the match.

Mahut and Herbert carried their momentum into the match tie-break. Serving at 7-5, Mahut sliced a second serve out wide on the deuce court for an ace to give the French team some margin. A Mahut forehand volley winner gave them the championship.

For the match, Mahut and Herbert landed 70 per cent of their first serves and won 72 per cent of those points. They also won a high percentage of their second serve points – 71.

It's a dream come true for us to be playing at this level of doubles,” Herbert said.

They will receive 1,000 Emirates ATP Doubles Rankings points and split $336,920 in prize money.

Re: Pierre-Hugues Herbert

back in top 100 next monday

Quote:
Battu par Nishikori (6-2, 7-6) au deuxième tour du Masters 1000 de Miami, Pierre-Hugues Herbert aime faire partie des rares attaquants du circuit. Et pense que ce serait une erreur de se focaliser sur les JO et la Coupe Davis.
Éliminé par Kei Nishikori (6e) après avoir obtenu deux balles de deuxième set (6-2, 7-6) mais toujours en course en double avec Nicolas Mahut, Pierre-Hugues Herbert (25 ans) trouve de plus en plus ses marques sur le circuit. Aujourd’hui 107e, il retrouvera le top 100 après Miami. Trop vite catalogué spécialiste du double, il veut surtout trouver sa voie en simple.

«Oui, un peu comme Mika (Llodra) l’était. Presque plus personne ne pratique le service-volée. J’ai l’impression d’avoir différentes cordes à mon arc. Je peux être agressif de plusieurs manières. Je reste un attaquant mais je crois que mon jeu de fond de court s’améliore. Je suis plus constant qu’avant. Je sais mieux ce qu’il faut que je fasse pour arriver au filet. J’ai progressé dans ma relation avec la balle. Je veux dire : dans l’équilibre dans la frappe, la solidité des appuis, etc. Gabi Urpi dit toujours : “As-tu dominé la balle ou c’est la balle qui t’a dominé ?” C’est une chose sur laquelle je travaille. Très souvent, mon jeu de fond de court est très bon quand j’ai dans l’idée de monter. Après, c’est toujours la même chose, une histoire de curseur. Il faut trouver le bon rythme et le bon équilibre.»

UNE CHANCE, D'ÊTRE DIFFÉRENT ?
«Oui. J’en ai conscience mais pas depuis mon plus jeune âge. Je ne m’en suis rendu compte que vers vingt-deux/vingt-trois ans. Avant, je voulais plutôt ressembler à des gars comme Nishikori ou Djokovic. Mais j’ai réalisé que je ne pouvais pas rivaliser sur ce terrain. J’ai cinq ans ou dix ans de retard. Moi, j’ai très tôt porté mon jeu vers l’avant. Je crois à la différence. Ce qui rend Djoko si spécial, c’est sa souplesse et sa couverture de terrain. Moi, c’est le jeu au filet. Cette différence m’apporte automatiquement quelque chose. Surtout que mes adversaires n’ont plus l’habitude d’être confrontés à des profils de jeu comme le mien. Mais ça m’avantage, surtout si les courts sont rapides, comme ici ou sur les courts annexes, en Australie. J’ai envie de cultiver cette différence. Sans compter que ça me plaît de pratiquer ce jeu-là.»

LES JO, LE BUT ULTIME ?

«Non. C’est sûr que Nico (Mahut) et moi, on a les JO dans un coin de la tête. Mais mon objectif sur cette saison 2016, c’est le simple. D’abord, revenir dans les cent (ce qui arrivera après Miami) et être (directement) dans le tableau à Roland. C’est un rêve de jouer à Rio mais l’année est longue et il n’y a pas que ça. On a pas mal d’autres objectifs. De toute façon, je crois sincèrement qu’on serait moins bons si on ne se focalisait que sur ça. Je pars du principe que, pour être performants en double il faut qu’on soit très bons en simple. À Indian Wells (tournoi qu’ils ont remporté la semaine dernière), on a beaucoup bossé avec Mark Woodforde. On a des objectifs de jeu, de progrès, en double. Mais pas spécifiquement pour les Jeux. Pour les tournois que l’on dispute, on essaye de revenir avec la coupe. Il nous reste cinq tournois pour essayer de gagner notre place aux Jeux : ici, Monte-Carlo, Madrid, Rome et Roland-Garros.»

ET LA COUPE DAVIS DANS TOUT ÇA?
«Aujourd’hui, on n’est pas en première ligne. On a des joueurs devant nous qui tiennent vachement bien la baraque. Les quatre (Tsonga, Gasquet, Monfils, Simon) sont très expérimentés et jouent la Coupe Davis depuis des années. Ils sont très difficiles à détrôner. Bien sûr qu’on viendra en courant si on nous appelle, mais ce n’est pas la chose sur laquelle on compte le plus. Si on peut apporter le point du double à l’équipe, ce serait fantastique. Mais Jo et Richard forment une très bonne équipe, tout en permettant d’aligner quatre joueurs de simple. Sur le premier tour, ils ont fait le taf. Si on gagne Miami, Madrid, Rome et qu’on n’est pas sélectionnés pour le quart en République tchèque, ça ne me choquera en rien. Je n’ai pas l’impression d’être le premier choix. Finalement, on est là en renfort, pour intervenir en cas de blessure. Et c’est tout à fait normal.»
