Top seeds Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan recorded their sixth win in seven meetings over seventh seeds Aisam-Ul-Haq Qureshi and Jean-Julien Rojer on Thursday to improve to 1-1 in Group A round-robin action at the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals.

The three-time former champions triumphed 7-5, 6-4 in 76 minutes, winning 72 per cent of their first serves, for their 60th match victory for the seventh straight season. 

Afterwards, ATP Executive Chairman and President Brad Drewett was on-court to give the American twins the ATP World Tour No. 1 Doubles Team trophy in the 2012 ATP World Tour Awards presented by Moët & Chandon. They have won it for the fourth successive year and a record eighth time overall (2003, 2005-07, 2009-12). The duo also received the ATPWorldTour.com Fans' Favourite award for a record eighth time.

At 5-6 in the first set, the Bryans created four break point opportunities at 0/40 on Rojer’s serve, after two volley errors and a well-placed lob that the Dutchman could not return cleanly. Rojer hit a forehand volley long to give the Bryans the 38-minute opener.

At 4-5 in the second set, Qureshi and Rojer let slip a 30/15 lead, losing four straight points. Rojer missed three volleys and Qureshi mis-timed a forehand into space.

The Bryans have a 26-14 record together in 11 appearances at the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals. They have won a team record 82 titles and they are the only team in the Open Era (since 1968) to win at least five trophies for 11 years in a row.

Qureshi and Rojer are now 0-2 in group play. They are 34-24 on the year.
