Reporting from Wimbledon, England — Bob and Mike Bryan, the identical twins from Camarillo, won their 11th major tennis title Saturday, defeating eighth-seeded Robert Lindstedt of Sweden and Horia Tecau of Romania, 6-3, 6-4, 7-6 (2), in the Wimbledon men's doubles final.
It was the second Wimbledon championship for the twins, who tied Australians Todd Woodbridge and Mark Woodforde with 11 titles at Grand Slam-level events.
"This is as special as it gets," Mike Bryan said. "To equal the Woodies, a team that we idolized, the greatest team in our mind, is unbelievable. To get their title record and get the Grand Slam record, I'm trying to figure out what's left."
Of the four major tournaments, Wimbledon has been particularly troublesome for the Bryans, who have won five Australian Opens, three U.S. Opens and one French Open. At Wimbledon they have advanced to the semifinals eight times and lost in the final three times, while winning only once, in 2006, before Saturday. And twice this year they needed to play five sets to advance.
