Herbert & Mahut "Very Touched" At Being Voted Fans' Favourites In 2021 ATP Awards

French duo honoured with ATP Award for first time

After concluding the ATP Tour season by winning the Nitto ATP Finals, Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Nicolas Mahut have yet another reason for celebration. The Frenchmen have been voted as the Fans’ Favourite doubles team in the 2021 ATP Awards.

“Just want to thank all of you who voted for us,” said Mahut. “Winning on the court is a personal accomplishment, but receiving the Fans’ Favourite Award is a different kind of pride. Pierre-Hugues and I are very touched and hope to share some great moments next year together and with you. Thanks again and see you next year.”

Herbert added: “It’s the first time we've won this award. We had an amazing year and we’re so happy and so proud about it. We hope to be back next year, enjoying on the court and on the ATP Tour.”

Herbert, 30, and 39-year-old Mahut claimed three team titles in 2021, including their second at Roland Garros and third at Queen’s Club.

They have won 20 titles together since 2015 and are one of eight teams to have completed the career Grand Slam in doubles. In 2016, Mahut and Herbert respectively finished as the top two in the FedEx ATP Doubles Rankings.
