Bryan Brothers Win Wimbledon Title to Tie Men’s Doubles Record

July 2 (Bloomberg) -- Mike and Bob Bryan beat Robert Lindstedt of Sweden and Horia Tecau of Romania, 6-3, 6-4, 7-6 (7-2) in the Wimbeldon final to equal the Australian pair Todd Woodbridge and Mark Woodforde with 11 major doubles titles.

It’s the Americans’ second title at Wimbledon, where they won in 2006, and came in their fifth final at the All England Club. The 33-year-old twins have won five Australian Open titles, three U.S. Opens and one French Open.

Last year, they set the record for the most titles by a team since tennis went professional in 1968, with 62. Today’s victory, in their record 19th Grand Slam final, makes it 73. The top-ranked pair has been in one major tennis final each year since 2003.

Bob Bryan plays lefthanded and Mike is righthanded. They were born in California, and now live in Florida.
