“I was lost in the moment. We broke but, in my head, I thought it's 4-3,” admitted Pavic following his scoreboard error.
“It was a great atmosphere, a really special moment for us,” reflected the Croatian, who is also in the mixed doubles final on Sunday alongside Gabriela Dabrowski.
Marach and Pavic, having narrowly fallen in five sets in the 2017 Wimbledon final, held their Grand Slam trophy aloft in just their fourth team appearance at the major.
“I opened my mobile, I have 200 messages. It's going to be a long night. With emotions and everything. I not going to sleep a lot," continued Pavic.
“I’m really happy with these two weeks, the beginning of this year. We still haven’t lost a match!”
