French Julien Benneteau (L) and Edouard Roger-Vasselin speak between two points against Spain's Marcel Granollers and Marc Lopez during the French Open men's double final match at the Roland Garros stadium in Paris on June 7, 2014 - by Miguel Medina
The 11th seeds defeated Spain's 12th-seeded Marcel Granollers and Marc Lopez 6-3, 7-6 (7/1).
Yannick Noah and Henri Leconte were the last French pair to win their home title in 1984.
"When I was 10, 11, we went to the federation for some practice with all the other kids, and we slept here," said Benneteau.
"Some nights I would sit on the Chatrier alone and dream about just playing on this court.
"Now I have one of the best feelings."
