India's tennis ace Leander Paes and his new doubles partner Marcin Matkowski beat second seeds Jamie Murray and John Peers to win the Malaysian Open title in Kuala Lumpur on Sunday.

Paes and his Polish partner Matkowski won 3-6, 7-6(5), 10-5 against Murray and Peers in 90 minutes. This was Matkowski's second Malaysian Open crown. He first lifted the trophy in 2009 with Mariusz Fyrstenberg.

"In a match like that, especially in the final, the margins between winning and losing are very small," said Paes.
