Defending champions Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan (KC Explorers) captured their third Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters trophy on Sunday, defeating second seeds Max Mirnyi and Daniel Nestor 6-2, 6-3. The victory marked their 20th ATP World Tour Masters 1000 team title.

The American twins won 79 per cent of their first serve points and capitalised on three of their five break point opportunities to secure the win in just 57 minutes.

The top-ranked Bryans did not drop a set en route to their second triumph of the year, having won their season-opening tournament at the Apia International Sydney (d. Ebden/Nieminen). They improved to a 77-42 final record.

Mirnyi and Nestor were looking to lift their third trophy of the season, after winning titles at the Brisbane International (d. Melzer/Petzschner) and Regions Morgan Keegan Championships in Memphis (d. Dodig/Melo).
