Winners of the four tournaments of the Grand Slam and qualified for four of the Masters from 2015 to 2018, Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Nicolas Mahut have not yet ever won the Masters tournament, losing three times in the group stage, and then in the final last year against Mike Bryan and Jack Sock. But the fifth attempt may be good for the French pair winning the Australian Open and the Rolex Paris Masters this year, despite some hiccups in the couple (Herbert has put his career in double parentheses in the spring, to dedicate themselves to the simple, before finally playing the doubles with Andy Murray at Wimbledon, which has not much longer to Mahut).
The winners of 2016 in the same group as Herbert and Mahut
The two lights, which will compete also the Davis Cup in Madrid in two weeks, have been placed in the group Max Mirnyi in the Masters of London, in the company of the n°1 global, the Colombians Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah, the winners at Wimbledon, the US Open and in Rome this year, but never won the Masters. Herbert and Mahut face each other also the German pair Kevin Krawietz – Andreas Mies, winners of Roland Garros and who will participate in their first Masters, and the pair Romanian-Dutch Horia Tecau Jean-Julien Rojer, who won the Madrid tournament this year and winners of the Masters in 2016.
