The defending champions secured two breaks of serve in the first set and, after the second set started with four consecutive breaks, they broke in games seven and nine to wrap up the win.
“We played amazing the whole two weeks, especially the semi-finals and finals,” Murray said. “I’ve always had fun on the court. Really happy to win again.”
Mattek-Sands added: “Jamie, you were on fire this whole two weeks. We have a lot of fun. He keeps me grounded. I’m the energetic one.”
With the win, Murray becomes the first man in the Open Era to win the title three consecutives titles as he also tasted success alongside Martina Hingis in 2017.
