Woodbridge wins yet again
Todd Woodbridge
Woodbridge is a past master at the doubles
Australia's Todd Woodbridge claimed his seventh Wimbledon men's doubles title by partnering Jonas Bjorkman to a straight sets victory.

The pair beat Mark Knowles, of the Bahamas, and Canada's Daniel Nestor 6-1 6-2 6-7 (6-8) 7-5.

Woodbridge won his six previous titles between 1993 and 2000 as part of the famed Woodies partnership with fellow Australian Mark Woodford, who is now retired.

To a background of noise from Wimbledon's newly renamed "Hewitt Hill", fifth seeds Woodbridge and Bjorkman raced through the opening two sets on Court One.

They dropped the third set on a tie-break and finally broke the serve of Knowles to secure victory by taking the fourth set 7-5.
