"I want to thank my partner who is one of the best doubles players in the world and I'm lucky to play with him," Mirza told the sparse crowd on Philippe Chatrier Court.
"Last year I was a runner-up in the women's doubles so I'm delighted to finally get a Roland Garros trophy.
"It is my partner's birthday today so now I don't have to think of a gift to give him," Mirza added as the fans burst into an impromptu rendition of 'Happy Birthday'.
Bhupathi added: "
It's been a while since I won a grand slam and this is the first time I've won a grand slam trophy as a father so this is for my four-month old daughter back home."
