Joe Salisbury and Rajeev Ram are the new Monte-Carlo Masters doubles champions after an emphatic 6-4, 3-6, 10-7 win over Juan-Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah.

Their victory marks their second ATP 1000 title together (previous - Canadian Open 2021) and sixth in total as a team. It's also their first trophy on clay, which will fill them with great confidence ahead of this year's French Open. 

The pair now extend their spots at the top of the world rankings - with Salisbury ranked as the world No.1.

In a high quality doubles match up, Salisbury and Ram looked to make a statement from the first game, just missing out on two break point opportunities. They continued to pile on the pressure and eventually got their reward, making their breakthrough in the seventh game. 

The top seeds only dropped seven points on serve to take the first set 6-3.

However, the Colombian duo came back firing in the second. The two-time Grand Slam champions had the clinical edge in a series of deuce deciding points at the end of the set to draw level.

With the title decider coming down to a match tie-break, Salisbury once again stepped up to the plate. In a pivotal point at 3-2, the Brit pulled off a remarkable point, stretching to block a smash before putting away a punishing backhand winner. Having got the mini-break in the bag, Salisbury and Ram didn't let the lead slip and the British star sealed the title with a hammer of a forehand through the middle of the court.
