Herbert P.H./Mahut N. - Mektic N./Skugor F.
Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Nicolas Mahut are one of the best doubles in the world, two of them are current Australian Open champions, after Australia played two more tournaments, but did not have much success in those two tournaments, so we should expect to pass the first round at the Masters in Cincinnati.
The two will play against Nikola Mektic and Franko Skugor in the first round of this tournament.
This will be the first match between these two doubles.
Mektic and Skugor won Masters on the clay this season, it was the first tournament which they played this season, but they were not at a high level in subsequent tournaments, just before this tournament they played two tournaments on the hard surface, in both tournaments they lost in the first round,from doubles, at the moment, are no better than Herbert and Mahut, so the French will have a better chance for win in this match.
Herbert and Mahut are the fifth favorites in this tournament.
