Jamie Murray and partner Bruno Soares have won the Mercedes Cup doubles title in Stuttgart, beating Oliver Marach and Mate Pavic in the final.

The Scottish-Brazilian partnership, seeded second, prevailed 6-7 7-5 10-5 against the number four seeds.

It is the pair’s second title this year after February’s success in Acapulco, Mexico, and a 25th tour-level championship victory for Soares.

“Twenty-five is amazing; hopefully I can make it to 50,” said Soares.

Murray, 31, now has 18 titles to his name.

“We had a few close losses this year and it was nice to see it through and get it over the line and get another trophy,” the Scot told the ATP website.
