BORDEAUX, France (AP) — Twin brothers who play professional tennis as a doubles team helped the wife and son of another doubles player escape from a hotel fire.

Sanchai and Sonchat Ratiwatana of Thailand were making their way through thick, black smoke to exit their hotel when they heard someone calling for them.

It was the wife of Lucas Arnold Ker, who like the twins is in town for a Challenger Series tournament.

"After we got out of the room, we made some noise: 'Is somebody still here?"' Sanchai said in a telephone interview Tuesday. "She called, 'This way! this way!"'
