Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Nicolas Mahut won the title, defeating Oliver Marach and Mate Pavić in the final, 6–2, 7–6(7–4). Herbert and Mahut were the third all-French team to reach the French Open men's doubles final in six years.

Pavić retained the ATP no. 1 doubles ranking when fellow contenders John Peers, Łukasz Kubot and Mike Bryan all lost before the semifinals.

Bob Bryan withdrew from the tournament with a right hip injury, ending a streak of 76 consecutive Grand Slam events played alongside his brother Mike as a team.[1] Current US Open title holder, Horia Tecău, missed his first Grand Slam in 10 years with injury.[2]
