Pierre-Hugues Herbert Wins Third Straight Masters Title with Mahut

The French team of Pierre-Hugues Herbert (VCORE Duel G 97, POLYTOUR FIRE 125) and Nicolas Mahut are on a roll, securing their third consecutive ATP Masters title at the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters.


French Power


The French pair faced off against Australian Open champs Jamie Murray and Bruno Soares in a see-saw match. After dropping the opening set by a small margin, Pierre and his partner came roaring back in the second. With strong serves and keen net play, the Frenchmen turned the tables on their English-Brazilian opponents. Pierre-Hugues set up the winning point in set 2, firing off a ball too potent for receiving Soares to handle, sending it long. After another brilliant performance in the tiebreaker, the match ended in favor of the French, 4-6, 6-0, 10-6.

This marks the first time a French team has won the tournament since 1986, and the duo are the first to win the first three Masters tournaments of the season since the Bryan brothers in 2014.
