SATURDAY REVIEW - BRYANS WIN RECORD 13TH MAJOR TEAM TITLE

Bob and Mike Bryan have become the most successful doubles team of all-time after capturing their 13th major title at the Australian Open.
The American twins lifted their sixth trophy at Melbourne Park and overtook John Newcombe and Tony Roche's mark of 12 major titles.
The Bryans were contesting their ninth Australian Open doubles final in the past 10 years and were making an Open Era record 23rd appearance in a Grand Slam championship title match.

WHAT THE PLAYERS SAID

On winning an all-time record 13th major team title:
Mike Bryan: "Obviously, it feels real good to have that record. To be a part of history is pretty special. We weren't thinking about it much out there, but now that we have it, it's going to be fun to look back on our career and say we have the most Grand Slams. It's a big record, so we're pretty excited about it."

Bob Bryan: "We're competitors. We hate to lose. We want to finish [World] No. 1. We set goals to get better, to improve, and to play well at these big tournaments. That's why we'll be out here for the next few, three, four more years."

On their success together and in Melbourne:
Mike Bryan: "I think we're so successful at this tournament because we spent the off season mainly in the same spot working toward the new year. We come into these tournaments with momentum. Most teams, they fly off to different countries. But we're always pretty much thinking, eating, breathing doubles. We've just always had the drive to keep improving over time."

Bob Bryan: "I also think we never really point fingers in tough situations. Everyone has their slumps. We usually say how we feel right away. We clear the air. Those feelings never really linger, so we're able to bounce back pretty quick after a tough week."
