Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan have become the most successful doubles team of all-time after capturing their 13th major title at the Australian Open, defeating The Bryans share 84 titles since the Open Era began, followed by the team of Todd Woodbridge & Mark Woodforde with 61 titles.

"It feels real good to have that record," said Mike Bryan. "To be a part of history is pretty special. We weren't thinking about it much out there, but now that we have it, it's going to be fun to look back on our career and say we have the most Grand Slams. It's a big record, so we're pretty excited about it."

The Bryans were contesting their ninth Australian Open doubles final in the past 10 years and were making an Open Era record 23rd appearance in a Grand Slam championship title match. Only John Bromwich & Adrian Quist have won more Australian championship doubles titles (with eight).
