LONDON, JULY 16: Fourth seeds Lukasz Kubot and Marcelo Melo clinched the Wimbledon men's doubles title on Saturday with a 5-7, 7-5, 7-6 (7/2), 3-6, 13-11 win over Oliver Marach and Mate Pavic.
The final lasted a marathon 4 hours 41 minutes and was only the fourth Wimbledon men's doubles final to go to five sets in the last 20 years. The final set was the longest since 1992 when John McEnroe and Michael Stich defeated Jim Grabb and Richey Reneberg 19-17 in the decider.
That final was also the longest men's doubles championship match at Wimbledon lasting 5 hours 1 minute.
For Poland's Kubot, it was a second Grand Slam doubles title to add to his 2014 Australian Open victory with Robert Lindstedt.    AFP
