London: Indo- Russian pair of Mahesh Bhupati and Elena Vesnina will be taking on ninth seed Jurgen Melzer and Iveta Benesova in the Wimbledon mixed doubles finals on Sunday.

If Bhupati wins this title it would be his second Wimbledon mixed doubles title. Mahesh Bhupati has amassed a total of 11 Grand slam titles (7 mixed doubles and 4 Men’s doubles), which puts him just one title short of equaling his doubles partner Leander Paes who has 12 Grand slam titles to his name.
