We all know Nicolas Mahut can last on court. He was, after all, on the other side of the net during the record breaking marathon match back in 2010.

Mahut wowed
again as the year's first ATP tour double champion taking both singles and
doubles titles at Newport's Tennis Hall of Fame Championships by winning four matches
in the past two days (back up due to rain delays). A month ago Mahut was ranked
240. Today he is #75. Man on a mission.

Mahut had entered the
Newport tourney with a wild card. Partner Edouard Roger-Vasselin played a
big role in the dubs win of course. 

Congrats to both men and their sponsor Lacoste who grabbed these tourney wins in classic croc style.
