WIMBLEDON, England – American twins Bob and Mike Bryan won a record-tying 11th Grand Slam men’s doubles title Saturday, defeating Robert Lindstedt of Sweden and Horia Tecau of Romania 6-3, 6-4, 7-6 (2) in the Wimbledon final.

The Bryan brothers won at Wimbledon for the second time and matched Mark Woodforde and Todd Woodbridge’s Open era record of 11 major titles.

The No. 1-ranked Bryans won their 62nd career doubles title in 2010 in Los Angeles to surpass the record of 61 held by Woodforde and Woodbridge. The title on Saturday was the Bryans’ 73rd.

In the women’s final, Katarina Srebotnik of the Czech Republic and Kveta Peschke of Slovenia won their first Grand Slam title by defeating Samantha Stosur of Australia and Sabine Lisicki of Germany 6-3, 6-1.
