Its amazing how a 43 year old can win 3 Gland slams in one year. This pair of Hingis and Leander have done just that. Leander has once stated to the Statesman Newspaper that He has the Guts to go after his Targets and thats what makes him successful. The pair have become the 1st mixed doubles pair since 1969 to win three major titles in same year.
And how legends support each other..
