New Delhi:

It's been disappointing for the Indian tennis fans as the US Open men's doubles clash between Leander Paes-Lukas Dlouhy and Mahesh Bhupathi-Mark Knowles got postponed till Sunday because of the rain in New York.

This is the second time that rain played spoilsport as the match was originally scheduled for Friday.

Fans are expecting some great tennis as both Paes and Bhupathi are in top form. Paes is going for his second Slam doubles crown of the season, having already won the French Open, while Bhupathi clinched the gold at the Montreal Masters.

This is the sixth time that Paes and Bhupathi will be contesting a Grand Slam final together, but for the first time they will be playing on opposite sides of the net.

For their fans though it's a win-win situation. Either way, the glory will belong to an Indian.
