Bryan Brothers Win Miami
39 and feeling fine.
Mike and Bob Bryan claimed their 115th team title and 37th Masters 1000 crown on Saturday by defeating Andrey Rublev and Karen Khachanov, 4-6, 7-6(5), 10-4 in the Miami Open final.
The Americans rallied from a set down but ran into trouble in the second set when the squandered a break lead and had to do it in a tiebreaker.
But the American weathered the storm and played more consistent down the stretch to claim a lopsided match tiebreak to finish the victory in one hour and 32 minutes.
Rublev and Khachanov were playing their first ever final as a team. They had high praise for the Bryans after the final. “I grew up when they were winning everything and they’re still winning everything,” Rublev said. “It’s amazing. It’s a big honour and a pleasure to play with the best doubles players in history and to have a great fight and I think people really enjoyed the match. They’re the best and that’s it.”
