Bryan brothers set to break dry streak in Grand Slams, advance to Wimbledon doubles final

Defending Wimbledon doubles champions Bob and Mike Bryan are back in a Grand Slam final — their first in four tournaments.

The championship match on Saturday will feature three Americans and a Canadian.

The Bryans beat Michael Llodra and Nicholas Mahut of France 7-6 (4), 6-3, 6-2 in a semifinal on Friday.

They will play American Jack Sock and Canadian Vasek Pospisil, who beat Leander Paes of India and Radek Stepanek of Czech Republic 7-6 (5) 6-3, 6-4 in the other semi.

The top-seeded Bryans did not reach the final at any of the last three Grand Slam tournaments — after winning four major titles in a row before that.

Left-hander Bob and right-hander Mike have a record 15 Grand Slam doubles titles, including three at Wimbledon.
