Americans Bob Bryan & Mike Bryan won the Gold Medal at the London 2012 Olympics in Men's Doubles, defeating France's Michael Llodra & Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-4, 7-6(2). The Bryans capitalized on a slow start by their French opponents to break Tsonga to 30 in the first game, after they forced them into several volley errors. At 4-3, Mike Bryan came under tremendous pressure on serve. But fought back from 15/40 and saved five break points in total.
"This is the biggest win of our career right here," said Bob Bryan. "It's unbelievable."
At the 2008 Beijing Olympics, the Bryans won the Bronze Medal.
“To play on Centre Court at Wimbledon and win the gold medal is a dream come true," said Mike Bryan. "We could stop tomorrow and we got a big smile on our face for the rest of our lives."
The Bryans join Australians Todd Woodbridge & Mark Woodforde as the only pairs to win multiple medals in the men's doubles event since tennis returned to the Olympic Games in 1988.
The Bryans join Serena Williams as the other United States representative to win Olympic tennis Gold.
