Wimbledon - Men's Doubles: Kubot and Melo win historic final

Fourth seeds Lukas Kubot and Marcelo Melo have captured the Wimbledon men's doubles title. Kubot and Melo outclassed 14th seeded Oliver Marach and Mate Pavic in a memorable final 5-7 7-5 7-6 (2) 3-6 13-11. Kubot and Melo blew two consecutive match points in the 12th game of the fifth set before clinching a deciding break in the 24th game to take the win.

Marach and Pavic paid the ultimate price for not realizing any of their four break points chances in the 17th game of the decider. Champions Kubot and Melo hit 33 winners and 17 aces in four hours and 39 minutes of action.

Kubot and Melo have pulled off a perfect grass season, winning 13 matches and losing none. The pair previously made it all the way on the grass of s'Hertogenbosch and Halle. On the other side, Marach and Pavic ended runner-ups at all three tournaments they played on grass this year - Stuttgart, Antalya, and Wimbledon.
