Huey, Mirnyi kick off French Open doubles bid Thursday

Treat Huey and Belarusian Max Mirnyi were seeded 10th in the French Open men’s doubles and will see action early Thursday morning (Manila time) in the first round at Roland Garros.

The duo made the quarterfinals of the Australian Open and has won an ATP title this year in Acapulco. Huey is hoping to surpass his previous career milestone of men’s doubles quarterfinals in a Grand Slam event, something he has done three times already.

With his hopes of making the Olympics getting dimmer, the 30-year-old Huey can still make a career-turning performance in the French Open as they clash with Italians Fabio Fognini and Andreas Seppi at Court 15.
