Wild card entrants Jonathan Marray & Frederik Nielsen defeated the second-seeded and defending Wimbledon champions, Bob & Mike Bryan, 6-4, 7-6(9), 6-7(4), 7-6(5) to become the first men's wild card pair to reach the doubles final in the history of the event.
“They've won all these tournaments many times over. To actually beat them in our first semi-final at Wimbledon is a pretty big thing,” said Marray. "We're more than happy with it, how we played today. I'm just delighted to get a chance to play on Centre Court and share it with Freddy. We've been friends for a long time. To do this together, it's been great.”
Marray is the first British man to appear in the men's doubles finals at the All England Club since 1960, when the all-British duo of Mike Davies & Bobby Wilson finished as the runners-up. Nielsen, of Denmark, is the grandson of 1953 and 1955 singles finalist Kurt Nielsen.
Marray & Nielsen will play the number five seeds in the men's doubles finals, the team of Robert Lindstedt of Sweden & Horia Tecau of Romania, 6-4, 6-7(10), 6-4, 6-3 winners over Jurgen Melzer & Philipp Petzschner.
