Second seeds Jonas Bjorkman and Max Mirnyi beat top seeds Bob and Mike Bryan to retain their men's doubles title at the French Open on Saturday.

Sweden's Bjorkman served out for a 6-7 6-4 7-5 victory after he and Mirnyi, of Belarus, had recovered from a break down in the deciding set.

"Today was a big battle between the top two teams in the world," said Bjorkman.

"This is as good as doubles can get I think. This time we were maybe the lucky ones."

The Bryan brothers, of the USA, had been going for their third straight Grand Slam title.
