Already one of the most decorated men's doubles teams in the Open Era. The tandem of Mike and Bob Bryan have won their fourth Rogers Cup crown, defeating the Spanish team of Marcel Granollers and Marc Lopez 6-1, 4-6 (12-10).
It's already been a banner year for the American twins. Bryan & Bryan won tournaments in Sydney, Monte Carlo and Nice, France before winning gold at the Olympics just eight days ago, avenging themselves from their bronze-medal finish in Beijing in 2008.
To go along with their Olympic gold in addition to their 11 Grand Slam titles, the Bryan brothers clinched their 21st victory in the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 series today. Following the match, they showed their immense gratitude to the city of Toronto, calling it "the greatest city in the world." To win the Rogers Cup is great but to leave on a high by giving the utmost praise to the city hosting the event just makes it sweeter, making the Bryans look more like heroes - assuming they needed any help in that department.
As the Rogers Cup draws to a close, it's fitting that such a successful tandem came out on top. Now, it's onto the men's final as Novak Djokovic looks to three-peat as Rogers Cup champion. Of course France's Richard Gasquet may have something to say about that. We'll see what happens next.
Congratulations to Mike and Bob Bryan on a well-deserved victory.
