Though the Indian men’s doubles pair, Leander Paes and Vishnu Vardhan’s were disappointed after their London Olympics doubles campaign came to an end on Wednesday after going down to second seeded French pair of Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Michael Llodra 6-7 (3-7), 6-4 and 3-6, Paes said he and his unheralded Vardhan played “one hell of a match” against the French duo.
“Being the first time that we have played together as a team, we’ve played a hell of a match again. Our first round match was against some really tough opponents with one player No 33 in the world in singles (Robin Hasse) and the other No 21 in doubles (Jean-Julien Rojer), and we managed to beat them,” Paes said.
