VIDEO: Martina Hingis gives back massage to Leander Paes during Australian Open

It’s a known fact that Martina Hingis and Leander Paes share a good bond. And they demonstrated it once again at the Australian Open 2017.

Hingis and Paes, who have enjoyed significant success together, bowed out of the season’s first Grand Slam following a 3-6 2-6 loss to the local duo of Samantha Stosur and Sam Groth in the quarter-final of the mixed doubles event.

However, they didn’t go down without entertaining the crowd a bit. Early in the second set, Paes — apparently troubled with some back issues — lied on the floor. He, however, was not attended by a physio, but his partner Hingis.

As can be seen in the video below, Hingis crawled on Paes’ back, much to the mirth of the spectators. This, however, was not the end of it.

During a changeover, Paes headed to their opponents’ side and strangled Groth — obviously jokingly — as the latter’s partner Stosur burst out in laughter.

They are certainly a legendary duo, aren’t they?
