Leander Paes wins the Wimbledon 2010 Mixed Doubles along with Cara Black. This is his 12th Grand Slam Doubles title, and his 6th Mixed Doubles Slam title. He has won four times at Wimbledon now, of which this is his third in the Mixed Doubles. This is his third title partnering Cara Black. Although they have made it to the finals of a Grand Slam on five occasions.

The second seeded Paes and Black defeated the eleventh seeded Moodie and Raymond in straight sets 6-4, 7-6. The tournament for this Indo-Zimbabwean pair has been very good, except for the start, when almost in every match they managed to get broken in their very first service game, though almost every time that happened they managed to surprisingly win the set.

Leander Paes has enjoyed a lot of success with Mahesh Bhupati in the Men’s Double section and recently he has been doing very well with his present partner Lukas Dhouhly. In the mixed doubles, he has had a lot of success with Martina Navratilova (definitely one of the legends in tennis) and these days he is playing exceptionally well along with Cara Black.

Cara Black is a very good net player and is Paes, so they support each other’s game very well. In the final also Black played some exceptional tennis, as she did in the earlier rounds as well especially in the Quarter Finals.

In the end I congratulate both Leander Paes and Cara Black for this Wimbledon victory. Also in my earlier posts I had written that I would like both Rafael Nadal and Leader Paes to win today. And it has happened and I feel like I am on cloud 9.
