Tennis: In their first ATP final ever, Kokkinakis and Thompson scored their first title after beating Gilles Muller and Sam Querrey in the doubles final of Brisbane.


Thanasi Kokkinakis and Jordan Thompon are the Brisbane International men's doubles champions for this year's tournament edition. 

The Australian tennis players needed two sets to outclass Giller Muller and Sam Querrey in the final 7-6 (7) 6-4. The match last an hour and 35 minutes. 

Prior to the Brisbane event, Kokkinakis and Thompson were yet to play an ATP final in singles or doubles. Now, they're leaving the tournament with their first ATP title. 

''It's crazy to go on a run like that with a mate and beat some quality teams in Brisbane... it's pretty surreal,'' Kokkinakis said after the match. 

''It's huge backing up matches, even doubles... backing up and getting your body right is the biggest thing,'' Thompson said post-match. 

In Chennai, Rohan Bopanna and Jeevan Nedunchezhiyan defeated Purav Raja and Divij Sharan in the all-Indian men's doubles final 6-3 6-4. It took an hour and five minutes for the clash to be concluded. 

Prior to this year's Chennai Open, Bopanna and Nedunchezhiyan played only once as a pair -- at last year's Chengdu Open. The two ended losing in the quarter-finals of Chengdu in 2016. 

Bopanna has now 15 ATP doubles in his collection, while Nedunchezhiyan has captured his first title in the competition.
