The first time I heard of the amazing dubs pairing of Bopanna/Qureshi was at Roland Garros. The two have had some solid on-court results together and now, after making the men's doubles final, are seeing some significant off-court results as well. Just this week, the U.N. ambassadors from Pakistan and India sat courtside, side by side, to watch them play.
It's a great story, and I know a lot of tennis fans, or, you know, peace fans, will be rooting hard for them on Friday. Sorry, BryBros. I know this win would be really big for you, but you have no idea how big it would be for them and, in turn, the world.

Oh, sport. Sometimes? You're awesome.
