    Default Rise and Fall of Lee-Hesh



    The Beginning

    The first ever Grand Slam that the unstoppable pair of Mahesh Bhupathi and Leander Paes bagged was the French Open in 1999. They played against Goran Ivanišević and Jeff Tarango, and breezed through with a scoreline of 6-2,7-5 in the finals. With this, they had made their presence felt in just the right way and with a lot of flair!

    Nailing It, Yet Again

    The next Grand Slam win for Lee-Hesh was a couple of years later during the French Open again. This time, they were pitted against Petr Pála and Pavel V*zner, both hailing from Czech Republic. This one proved to be yet another walk in the park for the talented duo. They emerged victorious with a 7–6, 6–3 scoreline

    Major Blow

    Things were going better than anyone could've imagined for Lee-Hesh right till the Asian Games in Doha. Instead of cherishing the moment and basking in their glory, both found it fitting enough to get caught up in a whirlwind of speculations and blame games, and called off their legendary partnership. This proved to be a telling blow to their controversial doubles career--and it's only gone south ever since.

    The Final Straw

    The Lee-Hesh battle took a messy turn as time passed. Paes and Bhupathi got together after a long gap at the Australian Open. Yet, things went sour again and chaos ensued. The pair reached the finals but lost to American twins Bob and Mike Bryan. Soon, a war of words followed and all hell broke loose. Mahesh has refused to team up with Leander for the 2012 Olympics. Instead of joining hands with Paes, Bhupathi prefers to team up with Rohan Bopanna.

    However, most fans would love to see the two gems of Indian tennis make peace and give that elusive Olypic medal a shot together. For now, Paes it's still not clear if Paes will agree to partner with 206th-ranked Vishnu Vardhan at the London Games. Only time will tell where the Lee-Hesh partnership/rivalry is headed
