Martina Navratilova says Leander Paes is the guy whom she enjoyed playing the mixed doubles with the most.
Navratilova had partnered Paes in the first half of the last decade and the duo proved to be fairly successful playing together, achieving glory at the Melbourne Park as well as the All England Club in the 2003 Season.

Andy Murray reckons David Ferrer is going to be stronger than all the opponents that he has come across in the ongoing French Open and to get better of him, he will have to take his game slightly more northwards.
Murray has not been able to win even a single match against Ferrer on clay courts.
He can be backed to break the ice this time around though as his form on clay off late has been nothing short of outstanding.
If he keeps playing the way he has over the last few weeks, he would be able to trouble Ferrer.
Martina Hingis reckons Sania Mirza can prove to be a very good partner for her in the doubles category, but, she has stayed short of committing to the long term relationship with the Indian beauty queen.

The 25-year old, who has been given the 6th seed in the tournament, seems to be well prepared and ready to take on some of the big names.
