This July, Mirnyi celebrated his 38th birthday. Throughout 2015, he has partnered various leading tennis players, including Spain’s Feliciano Lopez and Russian Mikhail Yuzhny. However, their commitment to singles matches has meant that they’ve often been unavailable. From January 2016, Mirnyi will play with Treat Huey, competing first at New Zealand’s Oakland, and later at Melbourne, for the first tournament in the Grand Slam series.

At present, Maxim Mirnyi is ranked 28th in the doubles ratings, by the ATP, while Treat is 34th. The Belarusian is familiar with the style of his future partner, as the two have played several times in the past. Huey, aged 30, enjoys four doubles titles — earned in ATP tournaments.

Mirnyi is now recuperating after a hard season and, in December, will start preparing for the new. He notes, “As regards my participation in the 2016 Olympics, in Rio de Janeiro, it’s too early to comment. I’ll take part in various tournaments until August. Afterwards, it’ll become clear who’ll receive a place in Rio.”
