"It's obviously an honour to hold this prestigious record," said Mike Bryan. "There are some incredible names towards the top of this list and it's humbling to be in such elite company. Huge props must go out to Todd Woodbridge, who epitomised class and excellence on and off the court."
The American twins improved to a 59-9 record on the season, earning $156,740 in prize money and 500 ATP Doubles Rankings points.
"It feels great to win again in Beijing," said Bob Bryan. "We love playing here and have created some really fond memories in this city. The facility is impressive, the hospitality is first class, and we always receive tremendous support from the fans."
Carlos Berlocq and Denis Istomin, who beat second seeds Max Mirnyi and Daniel Nestor in the first round, split $70,720 and 300 points. The duo was an alternate pair, replacing Frenchmen Julien Benneteau and Richard Gasquet in the doubles draw.
