Top-seeded Bryan twins lose in French's 2nd round

PARIS (AP) — American twins Bob and Mike Bryan have been upset in the second round of French Open men's doubles by unseeded Brazilians Marcelo Melo and Bruno Soares.

The top-seeded Bryans lost 6-3, 7-6 (6) Saturday, ending their bid for a record 62nd career doubles championship.

They tied the Open era mark of 61 men's doubles titles — originally set by the retired Australian pair of Todd Woodbridge and Mark Woodforde — by winning at the Madrid Masters two weeks ago.

The Bryans won their eighth Grand Slam title at the Australian Open in January.
