Croatian duo Nikola Mektic and Mate Pavic added a Grand Slam title to a dominant season by defeating Marcel Granollers of Spain and Horacio Zeballos of Argentina in the men’s doubles final at Wimbledon.

The top-seeded pair won 6-4, 7-6 (5), 2-6, 7-5 in a match played under the roof on Centre Court.

They had a first match point at 5-4 in the fourth set then converted their second to break Granollers’ serve in the final game.

It is the eighth title this season for Mektic and Pavic, in their first year as a pair.

Pavic also won the Australian Open in 2018 and the U.S. Open last year with different partners. It was Mektic’s first Grand Slam title.
