Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan play at the Miami Open on March 29, 2019 in Miami.


Back together again, Bob and Mike Bryan won their sixth Miami Open men’s doubles championship Saturday, defeating Stefanos Tsitsipas of Greece and Wesley Koolhof of Netherlands in the title match at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida.

It was the second tournament title in two months for the Bryan brothers who are also three-time Olympians. They also won the Delray Beach Open in February.

The Bryans won the final match in straight sets, 7-5, 7-6. The win came on a 10-8 tiebreaker. They lost just two sets in the entire tournament.

Bob Bryan, 40, is back in action with Mike after undergoing hip replacement surgery in August. The duo has been playing together since 1998.

In one of Bob’s first tournaments back, they reached the quarterfinal round in the Australian Open, the first major tournament of the year.

The Bryan brothers reached Saturday’s championship match with a three-set, tiebreaker win over top-seeded Lukasz Kubot of Poland and Marcelo Melo of Brazil on Thursday.

The action in Miami wraps up Sunday with the men’s final. John Isner, a 2012 Olympian who is seeded seventh, faces No. 4 Roger Federer of Switzerland.
