Andy Ram and Jonathan Erlich completed preparations for Wimbledon in style – by winning the AEGON International men's doubles title.
Having recently got back together, the Israelis wrapped up their first success in three years, defeating Grigor Dimitrov and Andreas Seppi 6-3, 6-3 in a rain-delayed final.
Play was not possible in Eastbourne so the match was moved to Roehampton.
Having clinched a 13th ATP doubles title, Ram said: "I didn't think we were going to be able to play the final, but it was great that we were able to play it in London.
"It has been a long time since Jonathan and I have won a title together, so we are really happy and excited and now looking forward to playing Wimbledon."
Erlich commented: ""It's always nice to win a title. I haven't played a lot of tennis because of injury so to be able to come back and play with my old partner and good friend and win the title is a good feeling."
"It is the perfect preparation for Wimbledon and will give us a lot of confidence to do well there."
