Bryan Brothers Win 11th Title of 2013 At Paris Indoor
It has been undoubtedly the best season of Bob and Mike Bryan’s career and it just got even better. The twin brothers won the BNP Paribas Masters in Paris for the third time in their career. This year the duo has played in 20 doubles tournaments,, making finals in 14 of them. Even more impressive, out of the 14 finals, The Brothers have taken home 11 titles. Following their inspiring 2012 Olympic gold medal win in London, the Bryan Brothers have won titles in 2013 at Wimbledon, The Australian Open, The French Open, Indian Wells, Madrid, Rome, Cincinnati, Paris, Memphis, Queens and Sydney.
“It was great week for us,” said Bob Bryan. "We’re very happy with our performance against a team that has had a fantastic year and who is playing with a lot of confidence at the moment. Hopefully this bodes well for the last tournament of the season.”
The stat sheet on the Bryan Brother’s 2013 campaign is truly historic and there is still one more tournament to go. The 35-year-old twins will make their eleventh appearance in the World Tour Finals in London to finalize their historic year. They’ve won the event three times in their career.
“This city (Paris) has been good to us during our careers,” Bob Bryan added. “We appreciate the support from the Parisian crowd and today’s atmosphere was fantastic for doubles. We’ll travel onto London tonight via the Chunnel and we look forward to playing at The O2, another venue where the spotlight shines brightly on our sport.”
One final stat on the Bryan Brother’s unprecedented season: with two months left in the year, the twins have secured the #1 ranking in men’s doubles for a record ninth time in their career. The closest team on the all time list holds just five year end number ones.
