Zimonjic-Srebotnik win French Open mixed doubles

June 04, 2010 08:05 IST

Nenad Zimonjic of Serbia and Slovenia's Katarina Srebotnik needed a match tiebreak for the fourth successive time to win the French Open mixed doubles title on Thursday.

The sixth seeds saved a match-point at 8-9 before beating Austrian Julian Knowle and Kazakhstan's Yaroslava Shvedova 4-6, 7-6, 11-9 to add to the crown they won together in 2006.

"We saved a lot of match points this week and I don't even know how we won today, so it's a great feeling," said Zimonjic.

The victory sealed Zimonjic's sixth Grand Slam title, while Srebotnik has now won four, all in mixed doubles
