Lukas Kubot and Marcelo Melo win it all at s'Hertogenbosch

Lukasz Kubot and Marcelo Melo have made it all the way at s'Hertogenbosch to claim the Ricoh Open doubles title.

The top seeds edged out Raven Klaasen and Rajeev Ram, the number two seeds, in the final 6-3 6-4.

Both teams were tied at 3-3 in the opening set when Kubot and Melo went on to win three games in a row and seal the opener. A break of serve in the third game of the following set turned out to be enough for Kubot and Melo, who then served out routinely to win the set and the match.

Kubot of Poland and Brazilian Melo converted two of their four break point chances and saved each of three break point chances they faced on Saturday. It took an hour and five minutes for the clash to come to an end.

It was the third title of the season for Kubot and Melo, the Miami Masters and Madrid Masters champions. 

South-African Klaasen and Ram, 33, defeated Kubot and Melo this past March to win it all at the opening Masters 1000 event of the season at Indian Wells.

Kubot and Melo are now set to make a trip to Halle, Germany, as they've been drawn to meet well-known Kei Nishikori and Fernando Verdasco in the Garry Webber Open first-round.
