Update: Wimbledon Women's Singles final and Men's Doubles final have completed today. Marion Bartoli emerged as the winner for Women's Singles final. The U.S. seed Bryans brothers won the Men's Doubles final. Women's Doubles final is being played out right now.
American top seed Bob and Mike Bryan brothers are playing against Croatia’s Ivan Dodig and Brazil’s Marcelo Melo in the Wimbledon 2013 Men’s Doubles final.
Although Melo and Dodig are only seeded 12th, the Croatian/Brazilian combination has been gaining plenty of momentum. If Bryan brothers wins, they would hold all four Grand Slam titles and the Olympic title simultaneously.
Four-time Wimbledon doubles champion Peter Fleming said on BBC Sport: “Clearly the Bryan brothers with some early match jitters, but those will settle down. This is Mach speed!”
Later, Fleming said, “Dodig and Melo were Supermen for the first five games, but the Bryans will take solace from that break.”
The chest-bumping Bryan brothers are not just twins, they are ‘mirror twins.’ Bob is the left hander, Mike is the right-hander and they have only spent a handful of weeks apart in their whole lives.
