    Well you got your money's worth in the men's doubles after a quick ladies' final!

    Bit like when we went in 2014, though I think the doubles matches were the other way around then.

    Enjoy!

    Well, that Men's Final was a truly amazing display of high quality doubles tennis and epic drama. Great promotion of the doubles tennis. Special tribute to the public who filled in the CC stayed after women's finals and helped to make it an unforgettable final.

    As for the match itself, I feel it was one of those rare occasion when I believe both teams deserved to win. I was happy for the winners but also sorry for the losers.

    Deep in the fifth first I thought it would be Marach who will crack physically but astonishingly he kept holding his serve. Once Pavic saved 2 MP I thought they will prevail and then Kubot/ Melo saved 4 break points from 0-40 showing great mentality. Ironically enough it was finally Pavic who finally cracked mentally be broken for the first time when serving to stay in the match after he held his serve for 14 or 15 consecutive times. For me he still was the player of the match and he will certainly win many slams in the future as he's only 24 while while Marach (the oldest of the 4 with 37) may not have another opportunity.

    Well whatever happens in this mixed final at least there'll be one British winner at this year's Championships. :) I like Murray and Hingis but Watson and Kontinen are the underdogs so I think I'll root for them.
