It was the first Grand Slam victory for the 26-year-old Mattek-Sands, known as much for her eccentric on-court attire as her tennis. For the final, she wore a lime, one-sleeve top, black skirt, black knee-high socks, purple streaks in her hair and her regular eye black on her cheeks.
Tecau also captured his first Grand Slam title. He has lost twice before in the men's doubles final at Wimbledon.
Paes, a 38-year-old doubles specialist from India, was playing in his second championship match in as many days. He won the men's doubles trophy with Radek Stepanek on Saturday night.
