Indian tennis sensation Rohan Bopanna, along with his Canadian partner Gabriela Dabrowski, routed Germany’s Anna-Lena Groenefeld and Robert Farah of Colombia 2-6, 6-2, 12-10 to clinch the French Open mixed doubles title on Thursday.

With the win, the 37-year-old from Bangalore claimed his maiden Grand Slam title.
