French Open: When Sania, Bhupathi ruled Roland Garros
In 2012, the Indian flag fluttered high and proud over the Roland Garros.
A recap of how Sania Mirza and Mahesh Bhupathi combined to lay claim to the mixed doubles' crown.
The win was their second Grand Slam title together and first French Open trophy.
The seventh seeded Indian pair scored a 7-6 (3), 6-1 win over the Polish-Mexican pair of Klaudia Jans-Ignacik and Santiago Gonzalez in one hour and 13 minutes at the Court Philippe Chatrier.
The Indians were slow off the blocks with their rivals dominating the proceedings early on but they raised the level of their game as the match progressed and in the end scored a comfortable win.
Mahesh Bhupathi was particularly impressive and presented himself a good birthday gift as he turned 38 on the same day. He had dedicated the title to his then four-month old daughter with wife Lara Dutta.
