ATP DOUBLES: A double-bagel doubles final at the Istanbul Open

Roman Jebavy and Jiri Vesely made it all the way at the Istanbul Open in a historic way. The Czech pair didn't drop a single game in the final clash against Tuna Altuna and Alessandro Motti 6-0 6-0.

The champions broke Altuna and Motti six times in just 41 minutes of action. The duo from the Czech Republic captured its first ATP doubles title this week in Turkey. Interestingly, Jebavy and Vesely will be meeting Motti in their first match at next week's Rome Challenger.

Though it won't be Altuna sharing the same side of the net with Motti this time -- it will be Maximilian Marterer. Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah of Colombia are the BMW Open by FWU in Munich men's doubles champions.

The number three seeds prevailed over Jeremy Chardy and Fabrice Martin in the final to claim the title. The Colombian duo lost just six games to the French team in an hour and a minute of play 6-3 6-3.

Cabal and Farah were successful on their break point tries, breaking Chardy Martin four times in five attempts. Colombia's Cabal and Farah now have won 10 ATP doubles titles together. It was their second title of this season, having won the Argentina Open in Buenos Aires in February.

Ryan Harrison and Michael Venus had a winning run at the Estoril Open to win their first ATP doubles title as a team. The unseeded team beat clay-court specialists David Marrero and Tommy Robredo in the final.

The American and New Zealander outgunned the Spanish tennis players in straight sets 7-5 6-2. It took 59 minutes for the clash to come to an end.
