The mixed open team consisting of Rohan Bopanna (37) and Gabriela Dabrowski (25) won the Roland Garros in Paris on Thursday. Bopanna is being described as a 37-year-old veteran, who is a late bloomer.

Bopanna first reached a major finals in 2010 when he was in the US Open finals against Bryan brothers, which he lost. Getting back in a final after seven years of effort, and finally winning it, his first Grand Slam title, is a major achievement.

Although at the start of the tournament, the team lost their first set 2-6 against Anna-Lena Groenefeld and Robert Farah, they finally won the next two sets 6-2 and 12-10.

According to Bopanna his strategy of serving and staying back, rather than serving and volleying, contributed a big part in this win, along with the fresh and aggresive strokes from his teammate Gabriela.
