Mike Bryan and Jack Sock clinched their second major championship in a row, defeating #7 seeds Lucasz Kubot of Poland and Marcelo Melo from Brazil, 6-3, 6-1 in just 74 minutes to win the US Open, giving Bryan his all-time men's doubles record 18th Grand Slam crown.
Bryan breaks a tie with John Newcombe for first all-time by triumphing at this level for the 18th time, also breaking a tie with his brother Bob Bryan, by earning a record sixth victory in Flushing Meadows. At 40 years, 4 months, he also passed Indian Leander Paes as the oldest Grand Slam champion in men’s doubles during the Open Era.
"That doesn't really enter your mind when you're playing out there. You're just thinking about your routine and getting great advice from your coaches," Bryan said. "You just play as hard as you can for as long as you can. If it adds up to some records, then it's very cool. But I just do it because I love it, and these are very special moments, holding these trophies. You never know if you're going to get them, so you really savor them. It's a massive team effort."
Bryan and Sock are the first team to win Wimbledon and the US Open in the same year since 2003. CONTINUE READING
