Bob and Mike Bryan claimed the Wimbledon men's doubles title for the second time and also won their 11th career Grand Slam championship to match an Open Era record.

The American twins earned a 6-3, 6-4, 7-6 (7-2) victory over Sweden's Robert Lindstedt and Romania's Horia Tecau in Saturday's final.

The Bryans also won the Wimbledon title in 2006, and their 11th doubles title together tied the record set previously by the "Woodies" -- Mark Woodforde and Todd Woodbridge.

Nicknamed "The Wonder Twins," the Bryans were playing in the Wimbledon final for the fifth time. They also lost the title match in 2005, 2007 and 2009.

Lindstedt and Tecau finished as the runners-up for the second straight year, having fallen last year to Jurgen Melzer and Philipp Petzschner.
