Lindstedt's Slam resume is pretty solid. He has now made it to at least the quarterfinals at all four Slams, including the Wimbledon finals twice. No Slam titles yet, though he does have 12 doubles titles overall. He and Tecau have been playing together since April 2010 and with great success: 12 finals, 6 titles. Their semifinal run in Aussie is a huge improvement on last year's first round exit so both men will get a big rankings boost.
