Record-breaking win for Bryans

Bob and Mike Bryan became the most successful doubles pairing of all time after winning their 13th grand slam title at the Australian Open.

The American twins surpassed the previous record they held jointly with Australians John Newcombe and Tony Roche with a 6-3 6-4 defeat of Robin Haase and Igor Sijsling.

The Dutchmen started well with an early break but the Bryans then rattled off four consecutive games to take the initiative.

They closed out the opening set and then cruised through the second to win their sixth Melbourne crown.
