Yesterday was just too good...awesome tennis by 42 years young man and Hingis is was a class act as always...Without any history, indeed. Paes/Hingis are different caliber, took a title without dropping any set.
Still, it was worthy to spend 40 minutes and witness Paes' magical touch again. :worship: :worship:
Yess they are invincible nowadays...Taking 40-45 mins to finish off the matches...Paes would finish with another 5-6 Grand Slams with hingis for sure:worship::worship::worship:Paes/Hingis are so much better than everyone else it's sad. They'll be racking up mixed slams until they're 50.
I doubt...The way level of tennis declined nowadays for Nestor, it would be miracle for another GS win...Also don't think they will continue in Men's doubles as a partner..How is Stepanek injury ?Just realised this:
Paes became the oldest man to win a doubles slam in USO 2013
Paes became the oldest man to win a mixed doubles slam in AO 2015.
A very impressive record :worship:
Of course, with Nestor still playing, that could change very soon. If, for example, Nestor/Paes win a slam, the record will go to Nestor as he is 9 months older.
Paes/Stepanek won't be playing together anytime soon. Probably never again.I doubt...The way level of tennis declined nowadays for Nestor, it would be miracle for another GS win...Also don't think they will continue in Men's doubles as a partner..How is Stepanek injury ?
You are, of course, right about Sherwood. I saw that written in a couple of places:Dear Pratik. I`m afraid Paes isn't still the oldest champion in mixed grand slams only by one or two days. Sherwood Stewart has the record : he was champion in Wimbledon 1988 at 42 and 26-28 days old. Paes at 42 and 28. But also Stewart is the oldest man to reach a final: australian open 1989 at 43. (it was held in grass in november-december) But do you think that Paes won't reach another final ?
I think Paes needs a younger partner, like mahut, bopanna, mergea...
