Rohan Bopanna, arguably one of India’s most Tennis players, has been making waves for quite some time now. Yesterday, in what was a significant day for Indian tennis, Rohan Bopanna clinched the Erste Bank Vienna Open 2017 title with Uruguayan partner Pablo Cuevas. This is the second major ATP title of the year for the par who had won the Monte Carlo Master back in April this year.

Perhaps more than the title itself, the method of the win was the more important factor which made the victory even sweeter. The defeated the multinational pair of USA’s Sam Querrey and Brazil’s Marcelo Demoliner. Here, it is worth noting that the duo of Bopanna and Cuevas were unseeded in the tournament. The final score read 7-6(7), 6-7(4), 11-9.

Despite that, the Indian and his partner put up a great fight. This is exemplified in the fact that they were actually down in the deciding set which would have cost them the title. Instead, they saved two consecutive match points to ultimately prevail in the match.

This is the third major ATP title of the year for Rohan Bopanna and his 2nd with Pablo Cuevas. In January, he won the Chennai Open with a fellow Indian partner, Jeevan Nedunchezhiyan.

Two other pairs with an Indian connection also ended up winning titles in what was otherwise a good day in Indian sport.
