The last 20 minutes of the men's final was played under a closed roof because of darkness. The entire women's match was played indoors on the Centre Court grass.

"For sure. Here at Wimbledon, everybody, especially Brazilians, knows how much I want to win this tournament", he said.

Kubot and Melo seemed to return from that break with renewed desire to put the match to bed and, with their third championship point, clinched a maiden Wimbledon crown at around 9PM local time. Melo won the 2015 French Open with Ivan Dodig.

This marks Kubot's first Wimbledon win and his second Grand Slam career title after his 2014 triumph in the Australian Open with Sweden's Robert Lindstedt. Two years ago the Russian pair made it to the final but lost to Switzerland's Martina Hingis and India's Sania Mirza in three sets, 5-7, 7-6, 7-5.
