Bryans move into 2nd on Open-era doubles wins list


DELRAY BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Defending champions Bob and Mike Bryan moved into second place on the Open Era doubles titles list, winning their 58th career title at the Delray Beach International Tennis Championships on Sunday.

The Bryans beat Philipp Marx of Germany and Igor Zelenay of Slovakia 6-3, 7-6 (3) to snap a tie with Peter Fleming and John McEnroe, and Bob Hewitt and Frew McMillan.

The Bryans are four titles away from surpassing the record of 61 held by Australians Todd Woodbridge and Mark Woodforde.

The American brothers also captured their 600th career doubles victory in their Delray Beach semifinal match on Saturday.

The Bryans have won eight career Grand Slam doubles titles. The latest came last month when they won their fourth Australian Open title in the past five years.

Next up for the brothers is first-round Davis Cup action against Serbia to be played in Belgrade next weekend.
