Cincinnati Masters: Jamie Murray and Bruno Soares win doubles final


Great Britain's Jamie Murray and Brazilian partner Bruno Soares have captured this year's Western & Southern Open men's doubles title at the Cincinnati Masters.

Fourth-seeded Murray and Soares came from a set down to beat Australian Open runners-up Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah in the final 4-6 6-3 10-6.

Murray and Soares broke Cabal and Farah in the fifth game and served out in the following game to take a 4-2 first-set lead before the Colombian duo stormed back to win four games in a row and steal the opener.

Murray and Soares saved a break point in the third game before they broke Cabal and Farah twice -- in the fifth and ninth game -- to force a decider.

No. 7 seeds Cabal and Farah had a 6-5 match tie-break lead before Murray and Soares won five points in a row to seal the win in style.

Murray and Soares converted 3-of-8 of their break point chances and saved 1-of-3 of Cabal and Farah's break point opportunities in an hour and 25 minutes of play.

Murray and Soares now have won three titles this season as they also made it all the way at the Abierto Mexicano Telcel in Acapulco and at the Citi Open in Washington.

Murray and Soares fell just short of winning it all at the Cincinnati Masters a year ago as they were defeated in the final by France's Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Nicolas Mahut.

On the other side, Cabal and Farah fell just short of landing their second title of the season.

Cabal and Farah's lone title of the season came in May when they made it all the way at the Rome Masters.
