Who do you look forward to seeing at the US Open? Keep up the good work. Always a joy to watch and a great inspiration to young tennis players!
We look forward to the food! Favourite place to eat in New York is a place called Les Halles. It’s a French restaurant, and they have the best steaks. We know all of the waiters; they take care of us. Whenever we win the Open, we go there for our celebration dinner. We bring about 50 people, and eat a lot of steaks, ribs, and escargot. That’s the first place that I tried it. It was pretty good – it tasted like chicken!
Of all the finals you've played in, which was your favourite?
It's a tough question. All the Grand Slams stick out in our memory. The French Open was really special because it'd been ten years since we won the French Open this year and we were down 4-2 in the third set tie-break and reeled off five points in a row. Playing a French team at Roland Garros, fighting the fans, so that one was really sweet and sticks out in my mind.
What good memories do you have from the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals?
The Barclays ATP World Tour Finals is the best showcase for doubles in the world. It's prime time. We're playing with the singles stars and we're always the featured matches right before theirs. At The O2 arena, you feel like you're rock stars with the lights and the sold out house. We always look forward to playing there.
What does it mean to be the No. 1 team in the Emirates ATP Rankings?
Being No. 1 on the ATP World Tour is pretty special. Sometimes we have to pinch ourselves because it's a dream come true to see your name atop the rankings. Everyone's gunning for you, and you've got to keep getting better to fight off some of the best teams in the world.
