FILA sponsored tennis player Horacio Zeballos and partner Nikola Mektic won the BNP Paribas Open men’s doubles title Saturday evening, defeating the No. 6 seeded team of Lukascz Kubot and Marcelo Melo 4-6, 6-4, 10-3.

Playing in just their second tournament together, the duo secured incredible upsets over Edmund/Skupski, Herbert/Mahut [1], Cabal/Farah [5] and Marach/Pavic [3] en route to a championship victory over Kubot and Melo.
