Bob and Mike Bryan win 4th title at ATP Finals in London


LONDON — Top-ranked Bob and Mike Bryan claimed their fourth doubles title at the ATP Finals with a 6-7 (5), 6-2, 10-7 win over seventh-seeded Ivan Dodig and Marcelo Melo on Sunday.

Playing in the final at the year-end tournament for the sixth time, the top-seeded pair won their 103rd title.

Dodig and Melo saved four break points in the first set that saw Bob Bryan accidentally send a first serve into the back of his partner's head.

Bob Bryan joked "that was going to be an ace, by the way."

Mike Bryan was uninjured and the Californians rallied in the second set before winning the match tiebreaker.
