Leander Paes and Martina Hingis, two legends of the game, were all praise for each other after winning their first Grand Slam together as Indian ace called it a “treat to win title” with the ‘Swiss Miss’.
“Leander Paes continues to make us proud! I congratulate him on the Mixed Doubles win with Martina Hingis at the Australian Open,” Modi tweeted.
It was third Australian Open mixed double title for Paes, who won with Martina Navratilova in 2003 and with Cara Black in 2010.
Paes also paid tribute to his team behind the scenes.”There are a few people who got us together. All you guys back home who put us together to win our first Grand Slam, thank you,” the 41-year-old said.
