New York, Sep. 14 (ANI): India-Czech Republic pairing Leander Paes and Lukas Dlouhy won the final of US Open men's doubles to claim their second Grand Slam title of the year.

They beat third seeded Mahesh Bhupathi and Mark Knowles 3-6 6-3 6-2.

"This is the best year I've ever had on tour," BBC quoted Paes, 36, as saying.

The Paes-Dlouhy duo had won French Open men's doubles title in June.

Sunday's triumph for fourth seeds pair comes after their loss in last year's final at Flushing Meadows.

Dlouhy had also reached the 2007 final with previous partner Pavel Vizner.

Paes has now won six men's doubles Grand Slam titles and three of those successes came with countryman Bhupathi. (ANI)
