The clean whites of Lacoste got some more airtime today when Frenchmen Arnaud Clement and Michael Llodra won the men’s doubles title over the Bryan brothers 6-7, 6-3, 6-4, 6-4.

A word on their trophy from Off the Baseline: “The Gentlemen’s Doubles Championship trophy is a silver challenge cup, which was presented to the All England Club in 1884 by the Oxford University Lawn Tennis Club who sponsored the original doubles play in 1879. The Gentlemen’s Doubles was played at Oxford University from 1879-1883 but moved to Wimbledon in 1884.”
