Second seeds Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan became the second team to qualify for the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals after winning their fourth Rogers Cup title on Sunday. The American twins saved a match point against Marcel Granollers and Marc Lopez to win their 21st ATP World Tour Masters 1000 crown 6-1, 4-6, 12-10 in Toronto.
“We had to switch up our strategy a little bit towards the end, but I thought we played a pretty good match,” Bob Bryan said. “We had the momentum big time at the beginning of the match. Could have been a 40 minute match but they got back in it. You’ve got to give them a lot of credit for fighting and making that such an entertaining match.”
The Bryans have won nine straight matches, following victory at the London 2012 Olympics where they completed a career Golden Slam. The two also lifted trophies at the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters, Sydney and Nice.
