Fourth seeds Lukasz Kubot and Marcelo Melo clinched the Wimbledon men's doubles title with a 5-7, 7-5, 7-6 (7/2), 3-6, 13-11 win over Oliver Marach and Mate Pavic. The final lasted a marathon four hours 41 minutes and was only the fourth Wimbledon men's doubles final to go to five sets in the last 20 years. The final set was the longest since 1992 when John McEnroe and Michael Stich defeated Jim Grabb and Richey Reneberg 19-17 in the decider. That final was also the longest men's doubles championship match at Wimbledon lasting five hours and one minute.

Why does it show Jack Sock as having to defend 45 points. I don't see where he played any of these 3 tourneys last year. Thanks for the explanation.
