Paris - Top-seeded Max Mirnyi of Belarus and Daniel Nestor of Canada won a second consecutive French Open doubles title by beating American twins Bob and Mike Bryan 6-4, 6-4 on Saturday.

The second-seeded Bryans were bidding to win their 12th Grand Slam doubles championship. That would have set a record for most in the Open era, which began in 1968.

It's the fourth French Open title each for Mirnyi and Nestor - but the others came with other partners.

Mirnyi also won at Roland Garros with Jonas Bjorkman in 2005 and 2006, while Nestor won with Mark Knowles in 2007 and Nenad Zimonjic in 2010.
