The Bryans are bidding to win their fourth Wimbledon title, adding to triumphs in 2006 (d. Santoro/Zimonjic), 2011 (d. Lindstedt/Tecau) and 2013 (d. Dodig/Melo). They also finished runners-up in 2005, 2007 and 2009.
The 36-year-old Bryans are chasing their sixth title of the season and first since the beginning of April, when victory in Monte-Carlo marked the culmination of a five-tournament streak.
