REUTERS: American twins Bob and Mike Bryan became the first doubles pair to win 100 titles together after they beat Spain’s Marcel Granollers and Marc Lopez 6-3 6-4 in the US Open final on Sunday.
The world No.1 duo broke the 11th seeds once in each set to claim their fifth US Open title and take their 16th grand slam title together.
The top seeds made their move in the fourth game of the opener and when they broke in the seventh game of the second set there was no way back for the Spanish pair.
Left-handed Bob Bryan served out for a historic victory.
The win gave the 36-year-old brothers a first grand slam title of the year and they have now won at least one grand slam title together for 10 consecutive years.
