Paris: It's for the first time that Mahesh Bhupathi has won two Grand Slam titles with the same partner - Sania Mirza. Before winning the French Open title, the Indian pair had won the Australian Open in 2009. Shortly after their Mixed Doubles title win at the Roland Garros, the champion duo from India spoke exclusively to NDTV. Here are some excerpts:

Q. Mahesh, the last time you won here at Roland Garros was very special, the first Indian winning a Grand Slam, and a first slam for you as well. What would you say is special about this one?

Mahesh: So many things...15 years later to be able to do it again, to do it with a really special friend of mine - Sania, for us to be representing India. There are so many different variables but all in all it's been a great day and we are just happy to win the title.
