MUTUA MADRID OPEN 2014
Bryans Win Clash Of Past Madrid Champions
by ATP Staff|
In a meeting of former Mutua Madrid Open champions, top-seeded Americans Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan defeated Poland’s Mariusz Fyrstenberg and Marcin Matkowski 7-6(4), 6-3 for a place in the semi-finals.
The Bryans won their five Madrid titles in 2006-07, ’10-11 and ’13, while Fyrstenberg and Matkowski lifted the trophy in in 2009 and ’12.
The American twins are riding a 23-match winning streak, triumphing in Delray Beach, Indian Wells, Miami, Houston and Monte-Carlo to increase their team’s title haul to 98. Mike Bryan became the first doubles player to be inducted into the century club with their victory in Monte-Carlo.
The Spaniards claimed their biggest team title last November when they upset the Bryans in the championship match of the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals.
