ATP INDIAN WELLS DOUBLES - Mahut/Herbert beat Pospisil/Sock to win their third title together

Nicolas Mahut and Pierre Hugues Herbert win the first Masters 1000 of the season. They beat the defending champions Vasek Pospisil and Jack Sock 6-3 7-6(5) in 1 hour and 22 minutes. In the first set the French players broke their opponents' serve at 30 in the fourth game, and then they saved three break points in a row on 4-2.

The second set was more intense in terms of decisive moments: after having no break points, Mahut and Herbert saved two set points on 6-5 and in the tie-break were always under control: before they led 5-3 and then 7-5. It's the third title they win together after ATP Queen's and US Open in 2015.

Pospisil and Sock do not succeed to win their fifth career-title after Wimbledon and Atlanta 2014, and as we said Indian Wells 2015. It's the third final they lost together after Cincinnati 2014 and Miami 2015. ALSO READ: Official promise of marriage for Fabio Fognini and Flavia Pennetta (PICS INSIDE)
