The Indo-South African pair defeated the Dutch-Austrian combo of Robine Hasse and Philipp Oswald 6-3 6-4 in the final of the grass court event, the last in the build up to the Wimbledon Championships.

The 30-year-old Indian finished the match with a forehand winner between the two opposition players across the court and raised his arms in celebration.

He mostly played with compatriot Saketh Myneni. They won two Challenger titles this season — in Nonthaburi and Girona.
