ATP MIAMI OPEN DOUBLES: Lukasz Kubot and Marcelo Melo beat locals Nick Monroe and Jack Sock

Lukasz Kubot of Poland and Brazilian Marcelo Melo are the 2017 Miami Open men's doubles champion. They defeated local American duo Nick Monroe and Jack Sock in the final on Saturday.

The sixth-seeded team handed a straight-sets loss to the unseeded pair 7-5 6-3.

The champions converted 3-of-4 of their break point chances, while saving 8-of-9 of the break opportunities they faced.

It took an hour and 22 minutes for the match to be concluded. Kubot and Melo made it all the way together at an ATP event for the first time this season. It was their first ever Masters 1000 title won as a team as well. The pair was close to winning it all at Indian Wells just recently -- but fell short in the final to Raven Klaasen and Rajeev Ram.

Kubot and Melo have continued their streak of claiming at least one ATP doubles title together in a season for the third straight year. They're back-to-back Vienna doubles champions, having won the tournament together in 2015 and 2016.

On the other side, Monroe and Sock will stay on one ATP doubles title captured together -- Stockholm, 2015. Full result: [6] Lukasz Kubot (POL) & [6] Marcelo Melo (BRA) d.
