Mens Doubles final at Queens

I am not a tennis expert and did not watch the end of the mens doubles but can anyone explain to me how the final set score was 10 - 5 ? An odd score , at least to me !

I wish I could help, but last set match scoring is a bit of a mystery to me - probably something to do with a tie-break I guess.

It wasn't a "final set" it was a 10 point tie-breaker after a 2 set match.

This was one of a number of changes made to ATP doubles matches to ensure quicker matches.

The first to 10 third set and the single further point at deuce throughout the game.

Meant to add it does not apply in Grand Slam events.

Thanks, thought the match was best of 3 sets hence my confusion. Thanks for responses.
