Top seeds Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan cruised in an all-American clash in the US Open second round on Saturday, defeating Jared Donaldson and Michael Russell 6-1, 6-2.

The four-time champions (2005, ’08, ’10, 12) continue their bid for their 100th tour-level crown after claiming their 99th trophy at the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati (d. Pospisil/Sock). For a place in the quarter-finals, the twins will battle countrymen Bradley Klahn and Tim Smyczek, 4-6, 7-5, 6-3 winners over Germany’s Benjamin Becker and Artem Sitak of New Zealand. Klahn and Smyczek have paired up for the first time at the US Open since their 2010 tournament debut, when they fell to the Bryans in the second round.

Second seeds Alexander Peya and Bruno Soares, the 2013 runners-up, clinched the first-set tie-break in their 7-6(5), 6-4 win over Australians Sam Groth and Chris Guccione.

Four other seeded teams also advanced: Ivan Dodig of Croatia and Marcelo Melo of Brazil, who reached the semi-finals last year, dispatched Dusan Lajovic and Joao Sousa 7-6(1), 7-5; young guns Vasek Pospisil and Jack Sock, seeded eighth, took out the Croatian-Romanian pairing of Marin Draganja and Florin Mergea 6-4, 6-2; No. 9 Jean-Julien Rojer and Horia Tecau defeated Jan-Lennard Struff of Germany and Austrian Dominic Thiem 4-6, 6-3, 6-4; and Soaniard Marcel Granollers and Marc Lopez, the 11th seeds, downed the Dutch duo Robin Haase and Igor Sijsling 6-4, 7-5.
