Bopanna and Dabrowski, seeded seventh, won the title following a stunning turnaround in the final.

Playing only his second Grand Slam final, Bopanna and Dabrowski saved two match points to eke out a memorable 2-6, 6-2, 12-10 win over Germany's Anna-Lena Groenefeld and Colombia's Robert Farah.

The Indo-Canadian duo saved two championship points en route their title victory.

It was also the first time that a Canadian woman won the mixed doubles title at Roland Garros.

"Hopefully you've enjoyed that final, there were lots of efforts on both sides," Dabrowski said in the on-court interview after the match.
