By his own high standards, 2013 has been an average year for Mahesh Bhupathi. With a win/loss record of 16/14, he's earned $221,693 in tour winnings. In February, he won the Dubai Open without regular partner Rohan Bopanna, lifting the ATP 500 event instead with French veteran Michael Llodra. After rejoining Bopanna, the pair finished runners-up in the Masters 1000 event in Rome in May. It seems that six different doubles partners in a year hasn't yielded the right fit or rhythm for him.
