PARIS (AP) -- Frantisek Cermak and Lucie Hradecka of the Czech Republic won the French Open mixed doubles title Thursday, beating Daniel Nestor of Canada and Kristina Mladenovic of France 1-6, 6-4, 10-6.

In the super tiebreaker, the Czechs won four straight points to go up 9-5 and clinched victory when Mladenovic netted a backhand volley.

It's the second Grand Slam title for Hradecka, who also won the 2011 women's doubles title, and the first for Cermak. The pair lost in the Australian Open final in January.
