PARIS, France - Liezel Huber and Lisa Raymond picked up their first title of 2012 on Sunday and fifth of their almost year-old partnership by beating Anna-Lena Groenefeld and Petra Martic, 76(3) 61, in the Open GDF SUEZ final.

Huber and Raymond's other four titles together came last year at Toronto, the US Open, Tokyo and the WTA Championships. It was not a completely smooth path to victory this week, though, for the top-seeded Americans, as they were extended to a match tie-break in their opener and then in the final had to fight back from a 5-3 first set deficit and a set point at 5-4.

It was Huber's 49th career doubles title (three of which have come at this event) and Raymond's 75th, putting her just one short of Jana Novotna for sixth-most of the Open Era. Here are the 15 players topping the list of most doubles titles:

Player Doubles Titles
Martina Navratilova 177
Rosie Casals 112
Pam Shriver 106
Billie Jean King 101
Natasha Zvereva 80
Jana Novotna 76
Lisa Raymond 75
Arantxa Sánchez-Vicario 69
Gigi Fernández 68
Helena Sukova 68
Larisa Neiland 66
Rennae Stubbs 60
Wendy Turnbull 55
Cara Black 54
Liezel Huber 49

Notes: Before Sunday's victory, Huber had been tied with Margaret Court for 15th place with 48 titles ... Huber and Raymond have won 23 of their last 26 matches dating back to the start of last year's US Open.
