Bob and Mike Bryan won the Wimbledon doubles title on Saturday to complete a career Grand Slam. The American twins beat Fabrice Santoro of France and Nenad Zimonjic of Serbia, 6-3, 4-6, 6-4, 6-2. It was their seventh consecutive appearance in a Grand Slam doubles final. The Bryans won this year's Australian Open and last year's US Open. They also won the 2003 French Open, and have two Grand Slam mixed doubles titles each. The brothers have appeared in every Grand Slam doubles final since the 2005 Australian Open. Only two teams have won the career Grand Slam in doubles in the Open Era since 1968 - Jacco Eltingh and Paul Harhuis of the Netherlands, and Mark Woodforde and Todd Woodbridge of Australia. (AP)
