Mahut is among the players with the most playing experience on the pitch. His career-high rating in doubles was world No. 1, and he won all four Grand Slam titles, an accomplishment of which very few people can say they are capable.
With a victory over the No. 12 seeds Henri Kontinen and Australian John Peers, Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Nicolas Mahut became the first men’s doubles team in over 13 years to complete the career Grand Slam. They finished their collection where their adventure began with a 6-4, 7-6(1) scoreline.
The Frenchmen, who played their first major together at Melbourne Park four years ago, always had the advantage in a fiercely contested final, with Australian Peers in particular producing some fine plays to prevent the No. 5 seeds from running away with the match.
The Frenchmen won the match in straight sets. In the end, however, Herbert and Mahut proved to be too sharp when it mattered, racing away with the second-set tiebreak to become just the eighth pair to win all four majors together, and the first since the Bryan brothers completed their set at Wimbledon in 2006.
The Bryan brothers won all four majors together in 2006.
