France's Pierre-Hugues Herbert has once again underlined that he and partner Nicolas Mahut feel great on the court this week. Herbert and Mahut, seeded at No. 7, defeated second-seeded Lukasz Kubot and Marcelo Melo 6-3 7-6 (4) to reach back-to-back finals at The O2 Arena.
Last year, USA's Mike Bryan and Jack Sock claimed the title after edging out the Frenchmen 13-11 in the match tie-break of the final. "We feel great on the court. We are so happy to play together,” Herbert said, per the Nitto ATP Finals.
“It has been a tough year and to be able to enjoy time on the court with Nico at the end of the year is just fantastic. Being able to win and being in the final again after last year is like a second chance. We will try to get it."
Herbert and Mahut reached the final without dropping a set in four matches played. "It has been five years that we have played together and we have had some ups and downs, but hopefully tomorrow will be a great up,” Mahut said.
“We are going to enjoy the moment. “The final is always the most difficult match to win. We have some time to rest tonight and we will give our 100 percent tomorrow to win."
