In a sport that is not known as a ‘team’ game, doubles comes as close as we can get, to playing as a team on the same court. Today we take a look at some of the most successful and revered doubles pairs, over the recent years.
Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi
The pair that made India visible on the radar of tennis, Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi were singularly responsible to bring glory to their country in the sport of tennis. They won three grand slam titles together, and made it to the grand slam finals six times in their career. Although their history is marred with controversy and personal problems, the pair toured up until 2002, briefly returning to reunite in 2011. This Indian pair, who had considerable success on all surfaces, stands fifth on our list.
