New Delhi: They experimented briefly with new partners earlier in the year, with Rohan Bopanna winning the Marseilles Open with Scottish partner Colin Fleming and Mahesh Bhupathi partnering Michael Llodra to win the Dubai Open.

Currently India's top two doubles players (ATP Rankings as on 1st April, 2013: Mahesh - No.10, Rohan - No. 12), they will be playing on the same side of the court, commencing with the Monte Carlo Masters. The duo believes that their experience of playing together on the tour during the 2012 season will hold them in good stead.

Speaking on the partnership Mahesh said, "We had a really good run last year, and had found a rhythm in our game while having a great time playing together. We have a refined understanding of each other's games, and gel well on and off the court… all strong characteristics that I know will translate into a successful partnership for us on the tour. Also as the country's top two doubles players, I don't think either of us could have asked for a more dependable partner."
