American twins Bob and Mike Bryan equalled Mark Woodforde and Todd Woodbridge's record of 11 Grand Slam men's doubles titles on Saturday when they captured their second Wimbledon crown.



The Bryans clinched a 6-3, 6-4, 7-6 (7/2) win over Sweden's Robert Lindstedt and Horia Tecau of Romania to add to their victory in 2006. They had also lost three previous finals at the All England Club.



Their Grand Slam haul also includes five Australian Opens, three US Open and one at Roland Garros.



However, they captured this year's Wimbledon title the hard way, needing five sets to see off Simon Aspelin and Paul Hanley in the third round and another five to subdue Michael Llodra and Nenad Zimonjic in the semi-finals.
